November 2018 – Congratulations to Arpad Pasztor who successfully defended his PhD thesis on November 7, 2018. He studied the thickness dependence of the charge density wave in 1T-VSe2 by scanning tunneling microscopy and developed a novel scheme to map the full complex CDW order parameter in real space.

September 2017 – Scanning tunneling microscopy of in-situ exfoliated VSe2 reveals a non monotonic thickness dependence of the charge density wave (CDW) order parameter and phase transition temperature. Both parameters are extracted directly form the charge modulation amplitude imaged in STM micrographs. This study lifts the contradictions of previous experiments claiming opposite thickness dependencies of…
