Theme 1 : Electronic and vibrational structure of individual nanostructures and nano-objects

Coordinators: Jérôme LAGOUTE (MPQ, Paris) and Muriel SICOT (IJL, Nancy)


  • Measuring electronic properties of matter at the atomic scale
  • Electronic spectra of meloecules and indiviual nanoobjects for molecular and nano electronics
  • Electronic properties of low-dimension materials (graphene, TMDs, hBN, phosphoren ...)

Experimental techniques

  • Scanning probe microscopes (STM, AFM) under ultra high vaccum and at low temperature (77K, 4K, or <4K)
