Overview of the Electrons-Photons-Surfaces group

by Rowe Alistair - published on

Initially, the research conducted by the Electrons-Photons-Surfaces (EPS) group within the Condensed Matter Physics Laboratory at Ecole Polytechnique concerned optical pumping in semiconductors studied by low energy photoemission. Over the last 10 years a number of new research themes have been developed including electronic spectroscopy via electroemission in UHV of working semiconductor devices, the effect of mechanical stress on the electrical properties of semiconductor nano-objects, studies of novel charge/spin coupling phenomena in semiconductors using a far field optical microscope, and near field optical studies of photo-induced matter motion.
