Lay Summary (German)

Lead
Phasenverhalten von wenigen Atomen und Molekuelen in Quantenkaefigen
Lay summary

Das Phasenverhalten, z.b. das Schmelzen oder Erstarren von Materialien ist von zentraler Bedeutung fuer jede Art von Datenspeicherung, das Trocknen der zunaechst fluessigen Tinte, das Ummagnetisieren kleiner Zonen auf einem Magnetispeicher und das Umschmelzen des Metallfilmes in einer wiederbeschreibbaren CD sind nur einige Beispiele.

In diesem Grundlagenforschungsprojekt wird das Phasenverhalten von wenigen (1-50) Atomen und Molekuelen in Quantenkaefigen studiert. Die Quantenkaefige sind nur wenige Nanometer gross, enthalten elektronische Quantenzusstaende in verschieden starker Auspraegung und koennen die Atome oder Molekuele in mindestens einem erstarrten und einem beweglichen Zustand zusammenhalten.  Auf einzigartige Weise kann das Phasenverhalten in Abhaengigkeit der Anzahl Atome oder Molekuele studiert werden. Phasenuebergaenge durch Temperaturerhoehungen werden genauso studiert wie solche welche durch die lokale Anregung ueber ein Rastersensormikroskop in einzelnen Poren induziert werden.

Das Konzept der Erzeugung von selbstorganisierten Strukturen mit komplexen Funkionalitaeten basiert auf frueheren Forschungsergebnissen der Gruppe und ist im Sinne von zukuenftigen Materialien auch weit ueber die Erforschung von Datenspeichern auf der atomaren Skala hinaus von Bedeutung. Die Eigenschaften solcher Materialien werden sehr stark durch die Wechselwirkungen zwischen verschiedenen Komponenten definiert. So koennen durch Experimente im Vergleich mit numerischen Simulationen auch fundamental neue Einsichten gewonnen werden.

Abstract

In this project, we shall investigate the properties of condensates formed in the confinements provided by porous networks supported on systematically modified solid substrates. Thereby, specific hybrid nano-architecture arrays can be formed at surfaces from organic, (semi-)metallic1, and superconducting components and can be addressed and investigated by local probe experiments as well as by structural and chemical surface analytical techniques, also with synchrotron radiation. Based on recent achievements we plan to inspect the structure of the condensates, their temperature- and stimulus-induced structural transformation, the local and non-local electronic states created therein as well as different electronic state derived properties like superconductivity/Majorana and Kondo/Ruderman, Kittel, Kasuya and Yosida (RKKY) physics.
