Molecular Nanoscience Group

The Molecular Nanoscience Group is part of the Institut des Sciences Moléculaires d’Orsay, a joint research laboratory of the CNRS and Université de Paris-Sud XI. The goal of the Molecular Nanoscience Group is the creation of atomic-scale structures capable of incorporating diverse nanomachine functions (bistable molecule, single atom memory, photon nano-source, graphene and silicene nano devices, etc.).

The aim of the group is to achieve electrical and optical control of individual atomic-scale devices by combining experimental and theoretical expertise in :

  • the fabrication of functionalized atomic and molecular devices on surface
  • the electronic, optical and quantum control of such devices through atomic-scale manipulation using the Scanning Tunnelling Microscope (STM), Atomic Force Microscope (AFM), Optical Spectroscopy, and Synchrotron Radiation
  • the modelling of surfaces and adsorbates in a laser beam and the STM tunnel junction
