Surface and interface catalysis plays a critical role in many energy and chemical engineering processes. The key issue is to understand catalytic mechanism at microscopic scale and modulate catalytic reactions. Facing to this challenge, the applicant has been engaged on this topics in recent years and the following achievements have been made: 1) Fundamental understanding of the interface effect in the oxide/metal inverse catalysts has been made and the interface confinement effect has been suggested to explain the effect of the metal surface on the stabilization of metastable and highly efficiently active sites. 2) Molecule intercalation and enhanced catalytic reactions have been observed underneath two-dimensional atomic crystal overlayers. The concept of "Catalysis under Cover" has been suggested. 3) Development of deep ultraviolet laser PEEM and near ambient pressure PEEM with the resolution down to 5 nm and operation at 1.2 mbar atmosphere. Since 2013, the applicant has published 62 SCI papers, among which the applicant is the corresponding author in 43 papers. In the past five years the SCI citation number by other people is 3122. The related results have been published in Science (1), Nat Nanotechnol (1), Chem Soc Rev (1), Acc Chem Res (1), PNAS (2), and JACS (1).
