Torgny Gustafsson, Director

The Laboratory for Surface Modification (LSM) provides a focus for research in basic and applied studies of high-technology surfaces, interfaces, thin films, and nanostructures. Its activities involve multidisciplinary research in the disciplines of physics, chemistry, and materials science as well as electrical, chemical, and biomedical engineering. Surface modification encompasses a broad spectrum of phenomena that occur at the atomic level on the surface of solids, and advances in this technology have a fundamental impact on the fields of telecommunications, petroleum, superconductivity, computer science, energy harvesting, and energy storage. Research is supported with extensive, state-of-the-art, ultrahigh-vacuum instrumentation, electronics, and computational facilities. In addition, the laboratory operates a 1.7 MV Tandetron accelerator, complete with Rutherford backscattering and ion channeling capabilities. Other LSM facilities include a Thermo K-Alpha and a Thermo ESCALab 250 Xi system containing X-ray and ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy, reflection inelastic electron energy loss spectroscopy, and ion-scattering spectroscopy.
