Near field microscopies
Near field microscopies cover a whole of techniques making it possible to visualize the surface of materials at a nanometric scale. These microscopies gather: - Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) - Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) - Magnetic Force Microscopy (MFM) All these techniques have in common the positioning nanometric of a tip on top of the sample whose position is controlled according to the selected signal (current, force).

The formation of structural patterns on a nanometric scale is approached using the growth of thin layers. This approach is based on comprehension, until the atomic scale, of the relevant kinetic processes. A judicious exploitation of the energy hierarchy of these mechanisms led, by spontaneous ... More »
The emergence of the organic semiconductors in the electronics area and the technologies of information is now on a reality. Small molecules or polymers, these materials can be to substitute for silicon in the realization of transistors, photovoltaic cells or electroluminescent diodes. Easy to ... More »
The silicon carbide (SiC) is an interesting semiconductor for electronics because of its capacity to be functioned at high temperature. Another interesting property of this materials is the capacity that on its surface under certain conditions to organize itself in formed atomic dimer lines of ... More »
The discovery of quasicrystals in 1982 was a revolution in physics solid state. A crystal could have a 5-fold orientational symmetry prohibited by te usual crystallography. In return, its structure is aperiodic. One distinguishes quasicrystals with icosahedral symmetry (aperiodic in N=3 dimensions) ... More »
