At the moment, we are working on the development of a light detection system for a Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM).


Research Activities

List of research activities: Light emission by defects in 2D materials Development of a high performance light detection system for a STM STM tip preparetion system Device to cool down the light detection system Luminescence mapping by STM Confocal microscopy based on parabolic mirror   For more details, check the portuguese version. 

Publications in STML

Here you can see some publication from our group in the activiies of Luminescence in Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (L-STM or STML or STL).  Articles: Band gap measurements of monolayer h-BN and insights into carbon-related point defects Ricardo Javier Peña Román, Fábio J R Costa Costa, Alberto Zobelli, Christine Elias, Pierre Valvin, Guillaume Cassabois, Bernard Gil, …
