Ongoing Research Summary
Angle resolved photoelectron spectroscopy.
An angle resolved photoelectron spectrometer at the MAX- laboratory in Lund
is used to study the photon energy dependence of the emission intensity of metal
quantum well states and resonances. High resolution angle resolved photoelectron
spectroscopy is used to study energy shifts and line widths for electrons photoemitted
out of overlayer quantum well states having energies near the Fermi level.

Vibrational spectroscopy is used to study Cu(lll) covered by different monolayer
amounts of alkali metal or precovered by alkali metal and then exposed to water
vapour or CO.
A dedicated infrared spectrometer is used to study molecules on metal surfaces.
The studies are focused on different kinds of fundamental molecule - molecule
and molecule-metal interactions.
The properties of two-dimensional magnetic nanometer structures, magnetic clusters
and magnetic liquids are studied by magnetization measurements and magnetic force
Scanning probe microscopy
A UHV variable temparature STM is used to study structure and electronic properties of
metals and overlayers.
The Interface Modelling Group is working with theoretical investigations of
overlayer structures, homogeneous overlayers and islands, and bulk grain boundaries.
First principles methods and model calculations are at hand.
