This Ambizione research project aims towards understanding of the processes at liquid interfaces induced by free low-energy electrons. Electron-induced processes occurring in the liquid environment play an important role in several scientific fields, e.g., radiation damage to biological tissue or atmospheric chemistry. In contrary to the gas and solid phase targets which have been intensively studied in recent years, the processes occurring at collisions of free electrons with liquid phase targets are almost completely unknown. The reason for this - the difficulty in bringing the surface of clean volatile liquid into high vacuum environment - has been recently overcome by the invention of the liquid micro-jet technique at MPI Göttingen, Germany. We propose a combination of the liquid micro-jet technique with the unique electron spectroscopy infrastructure available at the Department of Chemistry, University of Fribourg, in order to fill this important gap in the field of electron-induced chemistry.
