Current Research Focus / Topic:

My main research project involves the integration of a new optical setup, combining a quite new spectroscopic technique, called photoinduced force microscopy (PiFM) with tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS). This enables access to the electromagnetic field distributions at the sample stage due to the imaging properties of PiFM and due to its combination with TERS, fundamental TERS research expands with respect to field-dependent enhancement factors or related exclusive sample responses. Another research focus is the investigation of nanoscale structural dynamics. Ultrafast tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS) is a growing field that employs plasmonic enhancements in order to study molecular motions on femtosecond and picosecond timescales. The main aim is to combine the high spatial resolution and chemical sensitivity accessible in TERS with new optical setup capable of investigating temporal molecular events.
