Optical diffractions as probes to surface diffusion of adsorbates

Xiangdong Zhu

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


I review some of the general aspects of using optical diffractions from laser-induced surface density gratings to probe diffusion of adsorbates. Among examples, the recent progress in the study of quantum tunneling diffusions is emphasized.
