Research

Our research is placed at the interface between Materials Science, Surface Science und Nanotechnology. We are interested in materials that can potentially be used in micro- and nanoelectronics, sensors and actuators as well as for energy storage. Some examples are:

  • Silicon carbide (SiC)
  • Graphene
  • 2D semiconductors and insulators (e.g. transition metal dichalcogenides, hexagonal boron nitride)
  • Thermoelectric materials
  • Dielectrics
  • Metal layers for electrodes
  • ...

Using different methods we investigate various proerties of these materials and interfaces between them:

  • Atomic structure and chemical composition
  • Electronic states and band structure
  • Phonons und plasmons
  • Chemical and mechanical properties

In order to reach our goal we follow a strategy that is comprised of:

  • Developmet of sythesis and preparation protocols
  • Characterization with different state-of-the-art surface analytical tools
  • Close collaboration with national and international partners
