Using synchrotron light we have shown how a two-dimensional oxide layer is formed on top of a parent layered material. Here is the link to our publication: https://doi.org/10.1039/D2CP00863G
There is a postdoctoral position available in our group to work on low-temperature scanning tunnelling microscopy. Duration: up to three years. If you are interested, please contact us.
Our study on growth of thin film of calcium fluoride on Si(111) has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics.
Our latest study, a combination of transport and scanning tunnelling microscopy experiments with DFT and tight binding simulations, was just accepted in 2D Materials.

Regione Lazio has funded our research project in which we will develop oxygen sensors made of graphene on flexible, plastic substrates. For more information, please follow this link: https://lpersichetti85.wixsite.com/lifeplastsens
Nice presentation at ICN+T 2021 conference by our PhD student Miriam Galbiati! She gave an overview of our recent work on graphene grown on Ge(011).
We can finally travel again! We will be at ELLETTRA, the Italian synchrotron radiation facility, 5/12 to 5/19 to run some great experiments at BACH beamline. Looking forward to it!
By using STM, ARPES and DFT simulations we have studied the electronic properties of graphene directly grown on a traditional semiconductor.
