Our research topics

  • Orbital Tomography

Visualization of the frontier orbitals of adsorbed organic molecules in momentum and real space.

  • Molecular thin films and their interfaces

Structural and electronic properties of device-relevant organic-organic and inorganic-organic heterostructures and thin films.

  • Thin oxide films

Controlled fabrication of oxide thin films and nanostructures with novel physical and chemical properties.

  • Model catalysis

Understanding the physical and chemical properties of oxide surfaces and oxide-supported metal nanoparticles.

  • Solid-liquid interfaces
