Surface Physics Research Department of Physics, Lakehead University

Research Expertise: Experimental Condensed Matter Physics

Our current research is focussed on the on-surface synthesis and characterization of novel molecular based nanomaterials.

The primary experimental technique we employ in our group is scanning tunneling microcscopy (STM).

Ongoing projects include:

  1. growth of topological polymers on metal surfaces, and
  2. the formation of 2-d nanostructures on passivated silicon surfaces.
