The current development of the scanning microscopes working in ultrahigh vacuum allows high-resolution measurements of atomic force and tunneling currents on individual atoms or molecules deposited on the surface of solids. Simultaneous measurement of the atomic force and tunneling current opens up completely new possibilities for the characterization of single molecules or molecular nanostructures on solid surfaces. The candidate will learn to work with atomic force microscope and scanning tunneling microscope in ultra-high vacuum. The aim of this work is carried out high-resolution measurements of the atomic and electronic structure of selected molecules deposited on solid surfaces. The main objective is to study chemical and physical properties of the molecular nanostructure by means of scanning probe microscopy.
