  Research Interest  
Our research focuses on the characterization of the bonding configuration and the electronic properties of a single molecule, self-assembled molecular nano-structures by using low-temperature combined scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) . We have a particular interest in fabrication of well-defined nano-structures, manipulating its electronic properties with electrical field and photons, as well as the ultrafast dynamic process on nano-structures.
