Title: Origin and tunability of unusually large surface capacitance in doped cerium oxide studied by ambient-pressure X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy

Here, the volumetric redox (chemical) capacitance of the surface of CeO2–δ films is quantified in situ to be 100-fold larger than the bulk values under catalytically relevant conditions. Sm addition slightly lowers the surface oxygen nonstoichiometry, but effects a 10-fold enhancement in surface chemical capacitance by mitigating defect interactions, highlighting the importance of differential nonstoichiometry for catalysis.
