Environmental Scanning Ultrafast Electron Microscopy: Structural Dynamics of Solvation at Interfaces


On the surface: CdSe surfaces have been used as a prototype for the investigation of the spatiotemporal characteristics of solvation by environmental scanning ultrafast electron microscopy (see picture, GSED=gaseous secondary electron detector). This study has shown that the ultrafast relaxation dynamics of polar molecules, such as water, in the adsorbate layers exhibit a striking dependence on the CdSe surface structure.
