Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials Colloquium Michel Van Hove


07 May 2009 FWN-Building 5111.0080, Nijenborgh 4, 9747 AG, Groningen
Speaker: Prof. Dr. Michel Van Hove
Affiliation: Dept. of Physics and Materials Science, City University of Hong Kong
Title: Detailed nanosctructure from analysis of STM and LEED experiments
Date: Thu May 7, 2009
Start: 16.00 (Doors open and coffee available at 15.30)
Location: FWN-Building 5111.0080


This presentation will sketch past progress and explore future directions in the atomic-scale structure determination of surfaces, interfaces and nanostructures.
Highlighted will be Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) and Low-Energy Electron Diffraction (LEED).  Both of these techniques are capable of detailed atomic-scale structure determination of nano-structures, by comparison between experiment and theoretical simulation.  Their application will be illustrated for buckyballs adsorbed on Cu(111).
