The surface science group is involved in the research of 
organic molecules which in the form of thin films possess 
semiconducting properties. We specialize in the preparation 
and characterization of highly ordered (epitaxial) layers 
on single-crystalline substrates, placing emphasis on the 
structure-property-relations. The diversity of 
complementary experimental methods (optical spectroscopy, 
photoelectron spectroscopy, electron diffraction, scanning 
probe microscopy, ...) is a key aspect of our group.

Research Interests and Areas of Supervision:
Structure-property-relations in organic solids and 
thin films; Graphene and modern 2D materials beyond 
graphene; Surface science
