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).

The German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) has awarded funding to the group for the investigation of the growth and structure of ultra-thin transition metal telluride films. Such films find applications as thermoelectrics, sensors, phase-change materials, etc. But more int...

Combining the expertise of all groups at the chair of solid state physics we unraveled the structural and electronic properties of CuTe chains grown on Cu(111).

These chains form after the deposition of one-third of a monolayer of Te and a subsequent annealing step. They are extremely well ordere...

Next week is the big week for Feifei and Sebastian. Both are going to defend their theses.

 

Sebastian Otto will take the lead on Thursday. He will defend his thesis about "Two-photon photoelectron spectroscopy on topological insulators" on Thursday 14:00,  lecture hall F. The public ta...
