Atomic and molecular spin systems
We use state-of-the-art scanning probe microscopes to explore the quantum world of atomic and molecular systems which contain an intrinsic magnetic moment, a quantum spin. In these systems, the interactions of the localized spins with each other and with the itinerant electrons of the hosting substrate leads to interesting collective phenomena ranging from highly correlated many-electron effects to entanglement and tunable quantum phase transitions.
