ABOUT ME

Welcome to my homepage!

My name is Rémy Pawlak, senior scientist at the University of Basel (Switzerland). I am from Southern France (Marseille), where I grew up and studied Physics. I received my bachelor's degree in 2004, and my master's degree in 2006 in Physics, microelectronics and nanosciences from the University Paul Cézanne (ranked 2/11) with a special focus on experimental physics in ultra-high vacuum conditions. In 2009, I obtained a PhD in Physics from the Aix-Marseille University on my work on the two-dimensional assembly and polymerization of organic molecules at surfaces characterized by scanning probe microscopy.

In 2010, I joined the group of Prof. E. Meyer at the University of Basel as a post-doc fellow where I develop, maintain and operate a low temperature atomic force microscope (AFM) and scanning tunneling microscope (STM). There, my research focuses on low temperature physics, on-surface chemistry, material sciences, single-molecule and quantum mechanicss at the atomic scale. My main expertises are the imaging of atomic structures and single molecules at surfaces using STM/AFM with functionalized tips, atomic manipulations, detection of force in molecular or quantum systems.

Besides science, I enjoy playing amateur football, skiing, diving everywhere I can, travelling around with my truck, playing video games and taking picture with a camera or an AFM microscope.

If you have any comments or questions, please contact me!
