Development of model systems of WRC’s

WOC’s and PS’s supported on well defined single-crystal surfaces.

Research Topic

The goal of my studies is the development of model systems of WRC’s, WOC’s and PS’s supported on single-crystal surfaces in order to understand and control the alignment of the molecular energy levels with respect to the substrate. Besides that, I’m working on a case study for an ambient-pressure photoelectron spectroscopy apparatus combined with a high harmonic laser source.
