Chair of Solid State Physics

Welcome to the internet pages of the Chair of Solid State Physics at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg in Germany.

Our research is focused on surface physics with special interest in surface structure analysis, adsorbates on surfaces, electronic properties and electron dynamics at surfaces.

With the beginning of the new year 2020, the SFB953: "Synthetic Carbon allotropes" is going to enter into its third funding period. For the first time, Daniel Niesner is going to be part of the collaborative research center and investigate the excited-state dynamics in synthetic carbon allotropes. ...

Only a few days left: Daniel Niesner is excited to present the groups' results on the electron and spin dynamics in lead halide perovskites at the fourth edition of the "Next Generation Solar Cells" conference at the Energy Campus Nürnberg. https://www.ngse.info/

Molecules cannot "decide" which partner they want to bind to. Therefore it is an enticing problem to understand how chemical reactions become selective, in our case stereoselective. By carefully analyzing STM data and combining them with extensive DFT calculations we unraveled the reason why parti...

The second Edition of the textbook "Oberflächenphysik" (surface science) by Prof. Thomas Fauster, Dr. Lutz Hammer, Prof. Klaus Heinz, and Prof. M. Alexander Schneider is available from today on. The textbook gives a compact overview about surface science and its experimental methods. For now, the bo...

The structural analysis of TaS2 is published as editors' suggestion in PRB today. This record-breaking LEED-I(V) analysis includes 128 inequivalent beams of diffracted electrons to determine the positions of 78 atoms in the two outmost trilayers. Fun fact: PRB announced it next to the Nobel Prize...
