Characterize single-molecule electronic properties using low-temperature scanning tunneling microscopy
Project Description

This project is to measure the electronic properties of single molecules experimentally at very low temperature. We will investigate the molecular orbitals, density of states, band structures, as well as single-molecule manipulation and excitation.
