We investigate the atomic and electronic structure of surfaces and thin films of technologically interesting materials like graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs). The goal of these research activities is a fundamental understanding of growth, interface and crystal formation and electronic structure at the atomic scale. A major research project at present is the growth and manipulation of electronic properties of epitaxial graphene on SiC.
Particular topics of research are:
- Epitaxial Graphene on SiC
- Intercalation and Doping of Epitaxial Graphene on SiC
- Structured Epitaxial Graphene
- 2D Materials
- Molecular Layers on Surfaces
