Understanding the interplay of electronic and geometric structure at inorganic/organic interfaces
Dr. Oliver Hofmann, Institute of Solid State Physics, Graz University of Technology

It is often stated that „geometry determines function“, i.e. that the specific atomistic arrangement of a system sensitively determines its electronic properties. In the present ta ... more
