Sapphire-supported water films: Paper with PNNL collaborators just accepted in JCIS

In collaboration with Hongfei Wang (Fudan University) and other current and former Pacific Northwest National Laboratory scientists, we used Sum Frequency Generation Vibrational Spectroscopy (SFG-VS) and molecular model to provide new insight on the orientation and hydrogen bond populations of nanometric water films on sapphire (alpha-Al2O3) surfaces:
