March 2016 – Scanning tunnelling spectroscopy on very homogeneous Y123 at 0.4K lift the veil on the vortex core spectroscopy. We find that the subgap features which have been challenging theoretical modelling for over twenty years do in fact not belong to vortices: they are observed everywhere along the surface with high spatial and energy…

December 2015 – Combining scanning tunneling microscopy, atomic force microscopy, and density functional theory we find that a simple necklacelike chain of single Mn atoms reproduces all the prominent features of Mn atom chains on Si(001), including their asymmetric appearance in filled states images not captured by current models. The upshot is a remarkably simpler…
