Low-Temperature Scanning Tunnelling Microscopy

Scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM) is the only experimental technique which uniquely combines atomic-resolution imaging of materials' surfaces with the ability to manipulate matter at the atomic-scale. We use low-temperature (LT-STM) in ultra-high vacuum to study the atomic and electronic structure of two-dimensional (2D) and topological materials, and combine these with atomic-precision atomic manipulation and lithography schemes.

Electron Transport

Complementary to the study of materials' surfaces in quantitative local-probe spectroscopy by STM/STS, we also investigate the physics of nanostructures and nanodevices in electron transport spectroscopy. We have recently installed a BlueFors LD250, equipped with radio-frequency electrical wiring and a vectorized (9T/3T) magnetic field.
