A light detection system for a STM

Luiz Fernando Zagonel

University of Campinas – UNICAMP

Is a Professor at the Physics Institute of the Campinas University (Unicamp) in BRazil (São Paulo).  Has been working in instrumentation applied to the study of light emission by nano structures with high spatial resolution in the TEM and STM. Holds a PhD in Physics and worked as a Post Doc at the Université Paris Sud, France. 


Several processes in a scanning tunneling microscope (STM) may induce light emission by the sample. Among others, such light can be emitted by plasmonic nanoparticles, direct band-gap semiconductors and color centers.[1,2] The... [ view full abstract ]
