Ah Reum Jeong has completed her PhD in physics at Ewha Womans University in Seoul, Korea. She now works as a postdoc in the Hybrid Material Systems & Nano-Analytics team of Dr. Marin Rusu in the Hybrid-PV-Project. „There are still relevant processes in molybdenum oxide which we do not completely understand yet“, she states.

In her research, she modifies MoO3-layers with defects and analyzes its morphology, structure and work functions at different temperatures by Kelvin probe force microscopy in ultra-high vacuum and Raman spectroscopy. Chemical composition of the films was in addition analyzed by x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy measurements under the guidance of Prof. Dr. Marcus Bär.

„At first I wasn’t aware that among the people surrounding my poster one person was a member of the jury“, Ah Reum Jeong says. „He has asked some quite specific questions and we had a very good discussion. I am really happy about this award since it helps to get even more attention for our work in the scientific community.”

„Ah Reum Jeong has convinced the jury with the scientific quality of her work and with a very clear presentation “, Marin Rusu states.  The poster has been presented at the Symposium "Synthesis, processing and characterization of nanoscale multi functional oxide films".

    MXenes for energy storage: Chemical imaging more than just surface deep
    A new method in spectromicroscopy significantly improves the study of chemical reactions at the nanoscale, both on surfaces and inside layered materials. Scanning X-ray microscopy (SXM) at MAXYMUS beamline of BESSY II enables the investigation of chemical species adsorbed on the top layer (surface) or intercalated within the MXene electrode (bulk) with high chemical sensitivity. The method was developed by a HZB team led by Dr. Tristan Petit. The scientists demonstrated among others first SXM on MXene flakes, a material used as electrode in lithium-ion batteries.
