Research (Schneider)

Research Interests

We are an experimental group working in the area of surface physics and chemistry. Our main aim is to determine the atomic structure of surfaces and adsorbates on surfaces with their properties. Our main tools for this are Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM), Low-Energy Electron Diffraction (LEED) and Density Functional Theory (DFT).
