Surface studies (related to probe techniques)
Surfaces studies are becoming increasingly important, putting topography, chemical composition and magnetism in focus.
The surface of a sample can be viewed as a huge imperfection, but it is at the same time the interface with which it interacts with the environment. This is the reason surface studies have become increasingly important. Topography, chemical composition, magnetism and even charge distribution for insulating materials can be of interest. In our laboratory these properties of surfaces can be analyzed by various scanning probe microscopy techniques.
