On-surface atomic-scale engineering of topological organic nanostructures

Project: Research

Project Description

The goal of this project is to synthesise and characterise low-dimensional organic nanostructures, in which the
atomic-scale morphology and electronic structure give rise to non-trivial topological electronic states. The project
will exploit metal atoms and organic molecules as building units in approaches of supramolecular chemistry
applied on surfaces, to achieve exquisite structural and electronic control at the single atom level. The motivation
stems from the bottom-up design of advanced materials, where novel electronic signatures will be applicable for dissipation-less electronics, spintronics and solid-state-based quantum information processing.
