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 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...
