Electron Spectroscopy and Microscopy

We use electrons as a tool to probe electronic excitations, crystal structure, magnetic field distribution and composition.

To the research team

Magnetic properties

We investigate magnetic and electronic properties using thermodynamic methods,  high field ESR and NMR spectroscopies.

To the research team

Nanoscale Chemistry

We focus  on the synthesis of inorganic, organic, and hybrid nanomaterials.

To the research team

Surface Dynamics

We research on high frequency ultrasound phenomena related to surface acoustic waves and bulk acoustic waves .

To the research team

Synchrotron Methods

Through the interaction of matter with radiation, we investigate the electronic and crystal structure of materials.

To the research team

Synthesis and crystal growth

We are dedicated to the synthesis, crystal growth and characterization of materials with specific properties.

To the research team

Transport and Scanning Probe Microscopy

We investigate the transport of charge and entropy in bulk materials and nanoscale devices, and map the local DOS and the magnetization in the nanoscale.
