Project Details

Description

A Cryogenic Scanning Laser Microscope (CSLM) is beeing developed. The sample placed on a chip is locally heated by laser power from a glass fibre, that is x-y scanned across the sample within a distance of a few microns. The spatial resolution is approx. 2 micrometer, given by the thermal healing length. The sample response is used to study the properties of the device under test.
A miniature Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM) with atomic resolution is under construction. It can be operated at millikelvin temperatures and will be used for the study of noise and dynamics of nanostructures.
