The vision of our research team is to develop new concepts and advanced research tools to master the design and the characterization of molecular structures by self-assembly techniques as well as their implementation and integration into device environments within the nanometer-regime.
The goal is to create unprecedented electronic and spintronic devices by addressing both classical and quantum properties of tailor-made functional molecules.
