Our research activity focuses on the the morphology and the electronic states in a diversity of nanostructures and low dimensional objects. We follow the Surface Science approach, namely Ultra-High-Vacuum (UHV) and in-situ (vacuum) substrate preparation and Molecular Beam (MBE) epitaxy. Our main experimental techniques include Angle-resolved Photoemission Spectrocopy (ARPES), X-ray Photoemission Spectroscopy (XPS), Magneto-Optic Kerr Effect (MOKE), and Scanning Tunneling Microscopy/Spectroscopy (STM/STS). Photoemission, as well as Near Edge X-ray Absorption (NEXAFS) experiments are also carried out at different Synchrotron radiation facilities around the world: ALS in Berkeley, Elettra in Trieste, Soleil in Paris, Max-Lab in Lund, and the SLS in Zurich.

The Lab currently features three different experimental setups:

Regular research activities are supported by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation, the Basque Government and the University of the Basque Country Projects. Access to synchrotron facilities in Europe is supported by the European Union through Research Mobility Programs

Our main research lines are:
