"Nature": Tricky Feat with Stand-Up Molecule
Jülich, 27 June 2018 – Scientists from Forschungszentrum Jülich have achieved a new level of precision working with single molecules. They succeeded in placing an ultrathin molecule in an upright position on a flat layer of silver atoms – and the molecule remained standing instead of reverting to its naturally favoured position. The artificial structure described in Nature illustrates the potential of novel molecular fabrication methods.

Felix Lüpke Awarded Nottingham Prize
Dr. Felix Lüpke, former doctoral researcher at the Peter Grünberg Institute – Functional Nanostructures at Surfaces, received this year’s Nottingham Prize for his paper entitled “Disentangling transport in topological insulator thin films down to the nanoscale”. Lüpke came out on top among 17 contestants in the final round. The early-career scientist was awarded the prize at the end of June at the Physical Electronics Conference at the University of New Hampshire in Durham/USA. At Jülich, Lüpke worked in the “Nanoscale Charge Transport Studied by Multi-Tip Scanning Probe Microscopy” working group headed by Prof. Bert Voigtländer. He now conducts his research at the Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.

3rd International Workshop on “Charge Transport with Multi-Tip STM Techniques”
This workshop aims to bring together the experts in the field of 4-tip STM surface transport measurements, as well as researchers interested in this new technique. The participants will present their latest results on nanoscale charge transport, obtained with multi-tip techniques. Also, common experimental issues and aspects of the data analysis which occur for this new technique will be discussed.
