Abstract

The CO oxidation reaction on Ir(111) is observed by the near-edge x-ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS) spectroscopy in the soft x-ray region. A continuous data acquisition at 33 ms real-time resolution is realized for a single event of the reaction without the repetition, by adopting the wavelength-dispersive NEXAFS technique. The time evolution of the coverages for atomic O and molecular CO is quantitatively estimated during the reaction. The obtained activation energy is significantly larger than that on Pt(111).
