Joachim is a surface scientist and x-ray spectroscopist. Primarily, he makes use of synchrotron-based x-ray photoelectron and x-ray absorption spectroscopy, but he also uses other microscopy and spectroscopy techniques to study and characterise atomic and molecular structures and processes at hard and soft surfaces. An important focus is the development of methods and instruments for in situ and operando experiment at the MAX IV Laboratory. There, Joachim is the spokesperson of the HIPPIE beamline, and he is also involved in the SPECIES beamline. His research interests comprise e.g.

  • the physics and chemistry of surface-supported molecule and transition metal complexes, their interaction with surfaces, processes at the atomic and molecular scale during molecular layer growth and chemical reactions over such molecular layers,
  • the investigation of the chemical processes underlying atomic layer deposition and their observation in real time,
  • the study of catalytic processes over organic and inorganic surfaces with particular focus on more complex chemical processes.

Joachim collaborates with physicists, chemists, quantum chemists and materials scientists at Lund University and other universities and research institutes around the world.
