Graphene (Gr) covered transition metal surfaces are attractive model systems for studying confinement effects. Here, we show and discuss how it is possible to run a catalytic reaction underneath Gr flakes.

He received a Ph.D. in Physics (2008) from University of Aarhus, for his scanning tunneling microscopy studies of surface alloys and ultrathin metal oxide films and their catalytic properties under guidance of F. Besenbacher. From 2008 – 2012 he had a postdoctoral position at the division of ynchrotron radiation research, Lund University, where he started to study ultra-thin oxides and graphene with high resolution and high pressure X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. He has been main responsible for commissioning the first synchrotron based HPXPS instrument in Sweden and in 2012 he was employed as a permanent researcher at the MAX IV Laboratory.
