Gas-surface reaction dynamics

C. Crespos, G. Volpilhac, P. Larregaray, L. Bonnet, J-C. Rayez
PhD Students: L. Martin (EADS grant), E. Quintas (La Havane - Bordeaux)



  • Modelling of elementary mecanisms of gas / surface reaction

Atomic and molecular adsorptions, Eley-Rideal and Langmuir-Hinshelwood recombination
Examples:
- Study of the dissociative adsorption of molecular N2 on a tungsten surface
- Determination of potential energy surfaces for gas / surface reactions (Modified Shepard algorithm)


Applications :
- Heterogeneous catalysis (H2/Pd, CH4/Ni)
- Plasma / Surface interactions (ITER project, atmospheric reentries)

Collaborations :
EADS Astrium (Bordeaux), ENS Lyon, CTP (Barcelona and San Sebastian),
Leiden(The Netherlands), Rosario (Argentina)
