Atomically resolved vibrational spectroscopy and ultrafast dynamics in 2D materials
In this talk, first, I will show the results of tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS) on emerging 2D borophene and silicene. The highly enhanced electric field perpendicular to the sample surface makes TERS a selective-modes enhancement behavior. The local structures and vibrational properties at defects, domain walls, and strain areas also could be resolved with sub-nanometer spatial resolution. Second, using ultrafast THz-coupled STM, we studied the ultrafast electron dynamics in the correlated material of 1T-TaS2 at the atomic scale. The pump-probe spectra vary strongly on the scale of one unit cell of the David star. The atomically resolved phonon spectroscopy and THz pump-probe spectroscopy are expected to shed new light on some crucial issues, such as charge density wave states and interface enhanced superconductivity.
