Ultra-Low Vibration Scanning Tunneling Microscopy at mK temperature

In addition to the 4K STM capabilities, we successfully added another ultra-low temperature scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy (STM/STS) system, achieved by dilution refrigeration technology, helping us delve into the local electronic structure of quantum materials and atomic-scale quantum systems.Our tailored low-vibration environment ensures optimal conditions for precise measurements, and we achieve an exceptional energy resolution of 43 ╬╝eV (144 mK), promising for the investigation and control of quantum matter at atomic length scales.

Low-Temperature Scanning Tunnelling Microscopy

Scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM) is the only experimental technique which uniquely combines atomic-resolution imaging of materials' surfaces with the ability to manipulate matter at the atomic-scale. We use low-temperature (LT-STM) in ultra-high vacuum to study the atomic and electronic structure of two-dimensional (2D) and topological materials, and combine these with atomic-precision atomic manipulation and lithography schemes.

Electron Transport

Complementary to the study of materials' surfaces in quantitative local-probe spectroscopy by STM/STS, we also investigate the physics of nanostructures and nanodevices in electron transport spectroscopy.
