Everything is made of atoms and various properties of materials can be attributed to elements and their arrangement in nano-meter scale.
Now, the techniques to investigate various materials with atomic scale are required. In our group, we are doing research using Scanning probe microscope, a tool for imaging individual atoms as follows.
- The spatial resolution of scanning probe microscope is improved to evaluate the atomic properties with higher resolution.
- The methods to identify atomic species and measure various physical/chemical quantities, such as chemical reactivity and electronic states, are developed.
- Single atoms on surfaces are manipulated to assemble man-designed nano-structures and characterize them (so called Nanotechnology).
We are exploring new materials and devices based on new working principles.
