 +2019-Jan-10
 +
 +  * Together with [[https://homepage.univie.ac.at/cesare.franchini/|colleagues at the University of Vienna, Michele Reticcioli and Cesare Franchini]], the Surface Physics group has found that polarons can localise on CO molecules adsorbed on TiO<sub>2</sub>(110).  The editors of Physical Review Letters have selected this work as 'editor's choice'.
 +
 +The article: Reticcioli et al., [[https://journals.aps.org/prl/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevLett.122.016805|Phys. Rev. Lett. 122, 016805 (2019)]] ⋅ [[https://arxiv.org/abs/1807.05859|arXiv:1807.05859]]

-* Constant bombardement of the planet Mercury by solar wind ions leads to erosion of the planetary surface and the formation of a thin exosphere. The interaction processes can be simulated in laboratory experiments carried out in the [[:atomic:|Atomic and Plasma Physics Group]] at IAP. Such data are of interest for the ESA mission BepiColombo, Europe's first Mercury mission. A report on this research project was broadcasted today in the popular TV science show "nano" on 3SAT and is also available [[http://www.3sat.de/mediathek/?mode=play&obj=76582|online here]].+  * Constant bombardement of the planet Mercury by solar wind ions leads to erosion of the planetary surface and the formation of a thin exosphere.
