Research Interests

We have a strong expertise in electrical metrology at the nanoscale based on scanning probe microscopy and other characterization techniques. We develop new techniques/ methods and apply them to solve open research questions in various fields like Biophysics, Electrochemistry, Material Science and Semiconductor-Physics - always with the focus on Nanoscience. The special technological emphasis on broad frequency and high speed electrical measurements at the nanoscale is combined with the development of accurate and numerical quantification procedures based on finite element modelling.
