Molecular Manipulation Lab

Once we can freely arrange and combine even a handful of atoms and molecules, a myriad of designer quantum systems can be constructed and studied. In the MoMaLab, we address the challenges of SPM-based molecular manipulation by combining experiments, simulations, machine learning, and control theory. Read more...


We develop and use high performance molecular mechanics simulations.
