Solid-Liquid Interfaces: Atomic-Scale Structure and Dynamics
Solid-liquid interfaces present an unparalleled opportunity to manipulate charge at the atomic scale and drive chemical transformations. The complexity of the solid-liquid interface, where even its spatial extent remains an open question, makes it critical to quantify the atomic-scale structure and dynamics of these interfaces. This goal is now within reach with recent developments in fields ranging from machine-learned potentials for molecular dynamics to spatially resolved in situ interfacial characterization techniques. This issue will highlight both methodological advances that bridge the scales accessible by computation and experiment, and novel interfacial phenomena identified using these methods.
