Fine tuning the ionic liquid–vacuum outer atomic surface using ion mixtures

Author affiliations

Abstract

Ionic liquid–vacuum outer atomic surfaces can be created that are remarkably different from the bulk composition. In this communication we demonstrate, using low-energy ion scattering (LEIS), that for ionic liquid mixtures the outer atomic surface shows significantly more atoms from anions with weaker cation–anion interactions (and vice versa).
