Strain Dependence of the Charge Density Wave Phase Transition
Vincent Pasquier

Thèse (2023)

Strain, which results from the deformation of a material, is used as a tuning parameter to study the charge density wave (CDW) phase in transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs). We have developed two bending devices to apply uniaxial or biaxial strain to low-dimensional materials. Characterization…

Tunable biaxial strain device for low-dimensional materials
Vincent Pasquier, Alessandro Scarfato, José Martinez Castro, Antoine Guipet and Christoph Renner

Review of scientific instruments 94 1, 013905 (2023)

Strain is attracting much interest as a mean to tune the properties of thin exfoliated two-dimensional materials and their heterostructures. Numerous devices to apply tunable uniaxial strain are proposed in the literature, but only few for biaxial strain, often with a trade-off between maximum…

Determining spin-orbit coupling in graphene by quasiparticle interference imaging
Lihuan Sun, Louk Rademaker, Diego Mauro, Alessandro Scarfato, Arpad Pasztor, Ignacio Gutierrez Lezama, Zhen Wang, José Martinez Castro, Alberto Morpurgo and Christoph Renner

Nature communications 14 1, 3771 (2023)

Inducing and controlling spin-orbit coupling (SOC) in graphene is key to create topological states of matter, and for the realization of spintronic devices. Placing graphene onto a transition metal dichalcogenide is currently the most successful strategy to achieve this goal, but there is no…

Vortex-core spectroscopy of d-wave cuprate high-temperature superconductors
Ivan Maggio-Aprile, Tejas Parasram Singar, Christophe Berthod, Tim Gazdic, Jens Erik Bruer and Christoph Renner

Physica. C, Superconductivity 615, 1354386 (2023)

The mechanism of high-temperature superconductivity remains one of the great challenges of contemporary physics. Here, we review efforts to image the vortex lattice in copper oxide-based high-temperature superconductors and to measure the characteristic electronic structure of the vortex core of a…

Twist-Angle-Dependent Electronic Properties of Exfoliated Single Layer MoS2 on Au(111)
Ishita Pushkarna, Arpad Pasztor and Christoph Renner

Nano letters, 3c02804 (2023)

Synthetic materials and heterostructures obtained by the controlled stacking of exfoliated monolayers are emerging as attractive functional materials owing to their highly tunable properties. We present a detailed scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy study of single layer…
