Title: From Isolated Ions to Multilayer Functional Materials Using Ion Soft Landing

Abstract

The ability to deposit intact polyatomic ions with well-defined composition, charge state, and kinetic energy onto surfaces makes preparative mass spectrometry, also called ion soft-landing, particularly attractive for preparing uniform molecular and ionic layers. Early studies characterized structures, charge states, and reactivity of sparsely distributed soft-landed species. Recent development of high-flux ionization sources has opened up new opportunities for the precisely-controlled preparation of both two-dimensional assemblies and three-dimensional multilayer architectures using ion soft-landing. Previously unknown phenomena have been uncovered following deposition of large numbers of ions onto supports thereby opening several exciting research directions in this field. Furthermore, faster ion deposition has enabled fabrication of novel functional devices. This review discusses important phenomena and highlights key developments pertaining to preparation of well-defined interfaces for studies in energy storage, catalysis, soft materials, and biology.
