About Larry L. Kesmodel

My research addresses current issues in surface science and the electron spectroscopy of surfaces. Recent activity has focused on structural and vibrational analysis of nanometer-scale molecular adsorbates on well-defined surfaces using high resolution electron energy loss spectroscopy (HREELS) in conjunction with other analytical techniques such as low energy electron diffraction and Auger electron spectroscopy.
