Notes

Abstract:
Terbium oxide thin films have been grown on Pt (111) in UHV environment. These thin films have been studied structurally using surface analytical techniques of STM, LEED and XPS. Terbium Oxide (Tb2O3) thin films were grown on Pt (111) using physical vapor deposition and further oxidized to form higher oxide TbO2 using atomic oxygen. This thesis is about the reactivity study of these terbium oxide thin films using methanol as a probe molecule. Goal was to study adsorption desorption kinetics of the terbium oxide and its change in reactivity with further oxidation using temperature programmed desorption (TPD). Preliminary quantitative analysis was done to find the methanol coverage. TPD data obtained gives us some indication about the possible products.
