Electronic and Optical Properties of Oxides

  • Oxygen defects  in CeO2(111)  
  • Luminescence from  MgO

Electronic and Optical Properties of Oxides

  • Probing the band gap of oxide surfaces
  • Characterizing point- and line-defects with respect to their atomic structure, thermodynamic stability and charge state
  • Identifying gap states induced by localized defects


Oxygen Vacancies in CeO2(111)

  • Inducing surface and subsurface oxygen vacancies
  • Probing 4f-type defect levels in the gap and electron localization in adjacent Ce ions

STM Luminescence from MgO

  • Exciting optical modes via electron injection from STM tip
  • Probing local luminescence by mirror system and CCD detector
