STM makes information on the surface structure of electrodes readily available, and hence turns out to be extremely helpful when tackling problems related to electrocatalysis and photoelectrochemistry. The development of further scanning probe microscopies is still an open and stimulating field of research in electrochemistry as well as in surface science.
