Kimura K. et al report a single-molecule investigation of electroluminescence using a scanning tunnelling microscope and demonstrate a simple method of selective formation of T1 excitons that utilises a charged molecule. All experiments were conducted using a LT STM operating at 4.7 K under ultrahigh vacuum.

Materials Innovation Platform (MIP)

Materials Innovation Platform  | © Scienta Omicron

Scienta Omicron´s Materials Innovation Platform (MIP) is to integrate instrumentation for growth and detailed characterisation of samples in-situ. Not only is sample cleanliness preserved by maintaining UHV conditions between instruments, but analysis and growth can be done at intermediate process steps and performed far more rapidly than if the instrumentation was separated. Scienta Omicron offers the broadest range of UHV surface chemical and structural analysis techniques that are fully integrated and interfaced by a single supplier.
