    Project Description

    This proposal will provide a central tool to focus existing research effort on the structure of surfaces in Australia. It will enable the construction of a toroidal photelectron spectrometer, developed in Australiaover many years, to be deployed on the Australian synchrotron, and to provide the high resolution data required for the determination of atomic positions on surfaces. This in turn will support research in the areas of advanced magnetic materials, low dimensional structures grown on crystalline surfaces and for the understanding of catalytic processes. The project is supported by a grouping of experimentalists and theoreticians who will collaborate to achieve a deep understanding of surface interactions at surfaces.
