Interfaces and Low Dimensional Systems

Experimental study of surfaces, interfaces, and low dimensional systems using photoemission spectroscopies and scanning-probe microscopies.

N1 Low Dimensional Systems

This experimental research line focuses on advancing in the characterization and understanding of surfaces, interfaces, nanostructures and low dimensional systems using different experimental techniques, such as photoemission-based spectroscopies and scanning-probe microscopies. It includes the study of chemical synthesis processes on surfaces, growth of thin films, self-assembly and the synthesis of new materials based on rare earths, among other topics.

Specific topics:

  • On-surface synthesis, self assembly, and non-catalyzed reactions.
  • Thin-film growth, new functional molecular materials, and 2D correlated materials.
  • Synthesis of novel rare-earth materials and electron-correlation phenomena.
