-With respect to nanotechnology our focus lies in the [[:atomic:surface:nanostructuring|production of nanometer-sized defects]] on various kinds of surfaces. For the formation of such defects, highly-charged ions have been shown to be a suitable tool. Another possibility is the interaction of [[:atomic:instrumentation:fslaser|ultra-short and intense laser-pulses]], which also modify the surface structure on a small length-scale.+With respect to nanotechnology our focus lies in the production of nanometer-sized defects on various kinds of surfaces.

-The studies of friction on a nanometer-lengthscale, nanotribology, is a third major topic in nanotechnology, to which our group contributes.+The studies of friction on a nanometer-lengthscale, nanotribology, is another topic in nanotechnology, to which our group contributes in collaboration with  the Austrian Excellence Center for Tribology [[https://www.ac2t.at/en/ac2t/|AC2T]].
-Most of the investigations are carried out, using either our [[:atomic:instrumentation:afm|Ambient AFM]], or a [[:atomic:instrumentation:uhv-afm|combined UHV STM/AFM]], capable of providing highest resolution images in ultra-high vacuum environment.+These investigations are carried out using state-of-the-art atomic force microscopes (e.g. a Cypher AFM from Asylum Research).
