He studies structure of surfaces and interfaces of materials for future electronic devices in atomic or molecular scale. In his group, dynamic behaviour of atoms or molecules on a well-defined semiconductor surface is investigated for atomic-scale devises by using surface analysis techniques such as STM and XPS. Controlling of surface structure of nano particles for dye-sensitized solar cells or gas sensors is another research topic.
