Research lines

We combine ultra-high vacuum low-temperature scanning probe microscopy with optical spectroscopy to investigate fundamental physical properties of single molecules interfaced with materials in their solid state.

We apply tip-enhanced optical spectroscopy to pursue these lines of research:

  • Investigation and control of luminescence on single molecules
  • Single-molecule Raman spectroscopy, vibrational mode mapping inside a molecule
  • Proof-of-concept single-molecular devices
  • Mechanical, electronic and vibronic properties of molecules
  • Correlation of luminescence with high-resolution STM/AFM imaging
  • Interaction of individual molecular species and their clusters with novel 2D materials
