ACHTUNG! Indico Wartung mit Dienstunterbrechung am Donnerstag dem 16.12.2021 von 10:00 Uhr - 11:00 Uhr (CET). Bitte beenden Sie ihre Arbeit rechtzeitig um Datenverlusten vorzubeugen! ATTENTION! Indico Maintenance with downtime on Thu 16 Dec 2021, 10 - 11h CET. Please finish your work in time to prevent data loss!
In order to enable an iCal export link, your account needs to have an API key created. This key enables other applications to access data from within Indico even when you are neither using nor logged into the Indico system yourself with the link provided. Once created, you can manage your key at any time by going to 'My Profile' and looking under the tab entitled 'HTTP API'. Further information about HTTP API keys can be found in the Indico documentation.
Additionally to having an API key associated with your account, exporting private event information requires the usage of a persistent signature. This enables API URLs which do not expire after a few minutes so while the setting is active, anyone in possession of the link provided can access the information. Due to this, it is extremely important that you keep these links private and for your use only. If you think someone else may have acquired access to a link using this key in the future, you must immediately create a new key pair on the 'My Profile' page under the 'HTTP API' and update the iCalendar links afterwards.

Operando investigations of heterogeneous catalysts: overcoming the spatio-temporal average
(DESY, Universität Hamburg, FB Physik)
XHQ / E1.173 (European XFEL)
XHQ / E1.173
Heterogeneous catalysts are composed of oxide supported catalytically active 4d and 5d transition metal nanoparticles, which are exposed to gas mixtures at atmospheric pressures and elevated temperatures under reaction conditions. The catalytic reactions involve spatio-temporal patterns with mesoscopic to nanoscopic spatial heterogeneities and slow reaction kinetics to ultrafast dynamics during chemical bond making and breaking.
One important ingredient of catalytic reactions are nanoparticle shape changes under reaction conditions, since they may have implications on the activity and selectivity of the catalyst. Nanoparticle shape changes involve atomic surface diffusion, which is a process with typical time constants from 1 s at room temperature to 100 fs at 1200 K. In the presence of gases, surface self-diffusion may be further enhanced.
In my presentation, I will highlight our recent attempts to overcome the complexity of a real catalyst under working conditions by operando surface x-ray diffraction experiments . I will present operando studies of surface restructuring of PtRh nanoparticles under CO oxidation conditions  and MgO supported Pd nanoparticle shape changes . Further on, I will address possibilities for future time resolved surface structure characterization using x-rays during fast kinetic processes or during photo-induced reaction dynamics. In the last part of my presentation I will address recent results of ultrafast optical pump x-ray photoemission probe experiments during photo induced CO oxidation over anatase TiO2 obtained at FLASH.
