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 well defined single-crystal surfaces in order to understand and control the bonding of these molecules to solid surfaces, and in particular the alignment of the energy levels of their molecular orbitals with respect to the substrate.
