Synthesis of functional materials and development of nanoprocesses based on surface reaction mechanisms

In the research section of surface physics and processing, we aim to develop various surface analysis methods with electron and phonon probes; Real-time photoelectron spectroscopy using synchrotron radiation and noble gas resonance lines for monitoring in situ surface chemical compositions and bonding states under a reactive gas atmosphere (Fig. 1). Based on the observed chemical and solid interface, we have synthesized functional materials such as diamond, multilayer graphene, diamond-like carbon using photoemission-assisted plasma enhanced CVD (Fig. 2).
