Gabriel Veith is a Research Staff member in the Physical Chemistry of Materials (PCM) group in the Materials Science & Technology Division at ORNL. Current research interests include catalysis, solid state chemistry, and ionic liquids. One of the unique aspects of this research is the development of physical vapor deposition (PVD) methods, such as magnetron sputtering, to prepare novel catalyst materials.
Selected current research themes include:
Understanding the fundamental interactions between catalytic nanoparticles and support materials.
- Supported gold and alloy catalysts.
- Carbon catalyst supports.
- X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and X-ray absorption spectroscopy of catalyst materials.
- Nanomaterial synthesis
