Chemical Physics and functional nano (bio) systems. The focus of this research field is to pioneer unconventional chemical reactions and self-assembly of surface-assisted functional systems (‘Chemistry beyond the test-tube’), and bio-hybrid systems as well as their local physical and chemical characterization with high resolution methods including methods allowing to study the dynamics of the systems investigated.
The Single-Atom Transistor: The World´s Smallest Transistor: It operates at room
temperature and switches an electrical current by the controlled movement of one single atom.
