Visit at National Taiwan University

From September 5 to 8, 2014, Volker Rose was invited to visit the Center for Condensed Matter Sciences (CCMS) at National Taiwan University (NTU), where he presented a CCMS Special Seminar entitled “Synchrotron X-ray Scanning Tunneling Microscopy”. His host was Prof. Woei Wu Pai, who leads the Surface Nanoscience Laboratory at CCMS. Prof Pai’s current research focuses on surface science using advanced scanning probe microscopy. In particular, his research concerns surface dynamics and morphological evolution, thin film growth and self-organization of quantum dots, molecular adsorption and the substrate response, and fundamental issues in the interplay between growth and electronic structures in the nanoscale regime. During the invited research visit collaborative research projects were discussed.
