The project was designed to develop novel spectroscopic tools for the determinations of molecular structures and dynamics on the surfaces of metal nanomaterials the critical component of heterogeneous catalysts, and to use the new tools to investigate whether a fundamental physical principle, the Born-Oppenheimer Approximation BOA, is valid on the surfaces of these materials or not.
