Research Highlights
Events & News

We investigate optical, electrical and morphological properties of surfaces and interfaces. From Metal-Semiconductor interfaces to Surface coupled charge oscillations - Surface Plasmons and Biological systems like Cells and much more - a diverse range of micro to nanoscale systems. 

The prime inhabitant of our bag of tricks is the Scanning Probe Microscope and many of their earthy Avatars: The Scanning Tunnelling Microscope and The Atomic Force Microscope. With them and other quaint tools we probe and comprehend Nature - in the nanoscale and try to push the limits of the invisible unknown a bit away.
