|Outline of Final Research Achievements
The surfaces and interfaces of metal oxides are extremely important because battery and catalytic reactions occur at those sites. It is generally difficult to reveal the surface and interface electronic structures with atomic-level spatial resolution. Therefore, we have combined metal-oxide epitaxial thin-film technology with scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) to reveal the atomic structures and electronic states on the surfaces of metal-oxide thin films. In this study, the knowledge of the surfaces and interfaces is applied to environmental and energy materials. Specifically, we introduce solid-state physics perspectives into electrochemical research and explore materials and physical properties.
