Research interests

We are developing techniques of single spin magnetic resonance. This is done by modification of the scanning tunneling microscope to detect high frequency power spectrum of the tunneling current that will exhibit peaks at the Larmor frequency. This will enable search of the local chemical information on the single molecule or atom scale. It will enable the use of single atoms as memory beats - for quantum information and computation purposes. Finally it will be possible to study on the single spin level many spin related phenomena (such as topological insulators, high tc superconductors etc).
In addition we are studying mechanical properties of matter on the nm scale, namely local stresses, strains and elasticity modules etc - together with their affect on local chemical reactions. We are studying the electron - electron correlations with dual probe microscopy.
The experiments are done at ambient, HV, UHV and cryogenic conditions.
