Anna‘s research focus is understanding the effect of surface additives on the chemistry at the metal oxide-gas interface. In Tuebingen, she used a combination of operando infrared and x-ray absorption spectroscopy, with DC resistance measurements to understand how noble metal surface clusters activate metal oxide based gas sensors. She is currently examining how the reaction with oxygen of typical SOFC cathode materials is influenced by binary oxide surface additives.
