Brief Summary of research:
My group focuses on local probe measurements of the electronic properties of nanoparticles and systems that exhibit inhomogeneous electrical properties on the nano-scale level. In particular, we employ cryogenic Scanning Tunneling Microscopy and Spectroscopy (STM and STS) and Conductance Atomic Force Microscopy (C-AFM), along with other AFM techniques.
Specific research topics related to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology:
- Superconducting Spintronics: triplet and p-wave superconductivity with ferromagnets, graphene and chiral-molecules
- Electrical properties of individual colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals
- Solar-cell thin-films: Perovskites and CIGSe
