Dive into the world of atoms to discover quantum materials
(English captioning / questions available)


Innovative technologies are usually based on the discovery of new materials and related novel physical phenomena. To better understand and master the properties of quantum materials and to put them to good use, we need to design experimental tools to probe and manipulate electrons and their interactions at the atomic scale. In our research, we wish to understand the fundamental properties of materials by using the scanning tunneling microscope to visualize the structure and electronic properties of quantum matter at the scale of individual atoms. This will enable the development of next generation quantum technologies.
