• Welcome to the
    Fonin Research Group

    Magneto- and spin electronics stand at the boundary between fundamental physics research, materials science and technological applications. Of particular interest here are new classes of magnetic materials as well as the surface and interface properties of magnetic nanostructures. We focus on the investigation of the interplay between structural, electronic and magnetic properties of low-dimensional systems at surfaces.

    Magneto- and spin electronics stand at the boundary between fundamental physics research, materials science and technological applications. Of particular interest here are new classes of magnetic materials as well as the surface and interface properties of magnetic nanostructures. In each specific area the interplay between structural, electronic and magnetic properties of the system under investigation is of prime importance.

The graphene/n-Ge(110) interface: structure, doping, and electronic properties

J. Tesch, F. Paschke, M. Fonin, M. Weinstruk, S. Böttcher, R. Koch, A. Bostwick, Ch. Jozwiak, E. Rotenberg, A. Makarova, B. Paulus, E. Voloshina, and Yu. Dedkov

Nanoscale 10, 6088 (2018).

The implementation of graphene in semiconducting technology requires the precise knowledge about the graphene-semiconductor interface. In our work the structure and electronic properties of the graphene/n-Ge(110) interface are...

Charge transport in a single molecule molecule transistor probed by scanning tunneling microscopy

S. Bouvron, R. Maurand, A. Graf, P. Erler, L. Gragnaniello, M. Skripnik, D. Wiedmann, C. Engesser, C. Nef, W. Fu, C. Schönenberger, F. Pauly, and M. Fonin

Nanoscale 10, 1487 (2018).

We report on the scanning tunneling microscopy/spectroscopy (STM/STS) study of cobalt phthalocyanine (CoPc) molecules deposited onto a back-gated graphene device. We observe a clear gate voltage (Vg) dependence of...
