Jérôme Gabathuler successfully defended – congratulations!

On 26th September 2022 Jérôme Gabathuler successfully defended his PhD entitled “The thickness of the quasi-liquid layer on ice and its interaction with atmospheric gases as seen by X-ray absorption and photoelectron spectroscopies" at ETH Zürich.

The event could be held in hybrid mode with the examination committee and part of the audience in person and others connected online. Jérôme provided a convincing presentation and performed well in the discussion. Congratulations! The project was using ambient pressure X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy at the Swiss Light Source to study the molecular level details at the ice surface at different temperatures as well as when the ice surface was exposed to low partial pressures of hexylamine.
