The electrode-electrolyte interface (EEI) constitutes a critical frontier in the development of highly efficient energy conversion and storage systems. Electrochemical reactivity at the interface is influenced by heterogeneity resulting from the active site distribution, catalyst particle size and morphology. In this work, we demonstrated how single entity characterization and controlled electrode preparation techniques using ion soft landing can be used to isolate the influence of a specific chemical or physical entity, thereby unifying theory and experiment in both redox and reactive electrochemical systems. Ion soft landing enable deposition of charged ions directly onto conductive electrodes and it has been shown to be well suited for controlling the size and charge of the deposited ions. We establish that controlled electrode preparation with specific nanostructures and chemistry will be instrumental in filling the scientific gaps and provide us a unique platform to isolate and describe chemical and physical processes occurring at EEIs.
