Our research program is focused on strongly correlated electron systems and mesoscopic systems. The goal is to advance our understanding of the nanoscale electronic structure in novel materials in order to predict and control new material functionalities. Our laboratory revolves around the use and the development of low temperature scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy, which are unique techniques that provide detailed information about the spatial electronic properties down to atomic scale and allow us to access the "quantum" world. With these techniques we can study new phenomena in established condensed matter systems like superconductors, charge wave systems, newly discovered materials such as topological insulators or molecular assemblies.
