Welcome to the Low Dimensional Systems and Surface Physics Group

Osterwalder Group

We investigate fundamental processes in low dimensional systems

The structure and reactivity in low dimensional systems like surfaces, interfaces or molecules is governed by the interplay of electronic and atomic motion. We study processes such as molecular adsorption and self assembly, charge and energy transport as well as fundamental aspects of light-matter interaction and associated electronic and atomic dynamics.

This is realized by atomic level probes such as photoemission, scanning tunneling microscopy and electron diffraction techniques. We have a variety of light sources available in our own laboratories and operate a beamline endstation at the swiss light source (SLS).

We are active in national and international collaborations to realize projects in consortia.
