Welcome to the Enders group!
We study surface-supported self-assembled nanostructures, from single atoms to complex 3D structures. Our focus is on the study of interesting effects at the interfaces between metallic, oxide and organic nanostructured materials, specifically how substrates influence the physical properties of the nanostructures they support through such interactions. Important aspects are the development of new strategies for nanostructure fabrication and the development of instrumentation.
As a graduate or undergraduate student in my group you can expect to receive training in surface science under ultrahigh vacuum conditions, nanostructure imaging, magnetic imaging and electronic characterization with scanning tunneling microscopy, and the development of instrumentation. You will gain experiences in one or more of the following specialties: Nanomagnetism, surface physics and chemistry, nanoscale science.
