Short summary of activities and expertiseMy doctoral research is about studying the ultra-thin films of Functional molecules on the surface and understanding of their growth patterns depending on the external stimuli. I am well acquainted by the various surface characterizing techniques such as STM, AFM, AC-AFM, XPS, UV/Vis spectroscopy for the understanding of the material properties on surfaces.
