Abstract

The physical behavior of lattices consisting of coupled quantum spins is often hard to predict, even when only few spins are involved. Yet, insight into such basic lattices can be key towards understanding the fascinating properties of complex magnetic materials on the macroscopic scale. In our lab we study small one- and two-dimensional lattices of magnetic atoms by building them from scratch, literally atom-by-atom, using low temperature scanning tunneling microscopy. Once built, the atomic structures can be probed locally using a combination of inelastic electron tunneling spectroscopy (IETS) and spin-polarized STM.
