The real time demo of atomic scale imaging of a topological insulator surface at the APS March meeting, in that essentially street level setting with the cryogenic compressor running is simply awesome. 

All these physicists walking by and taping on it did not make any difference… It is very impressive! Having worked with an STM for a couple of years, I can clearly appreciate the magnitude of this fantastic accomplishment by RHK Technologies. I am totally confident in our choice…. a custom built mK STM/c-AFM from RHK.

Our lab has strong interest in probing energy transport at the nanoscale. The RHK UHV STM in our lab is the primary tool that has enabled us in performing a number of key studies recently.

For example, we have performed first measurements of heat transport in atomic junctions (L. Cui et al., Science (2017)) and showed how quantum properties are observed even at room temperature in atomic junctions. More recently, we have further improved our techniques to probe thermal transport in single molecule junctions (L. Cui et al., Nature (2019)).

I must point out that these advances have been greatly enabled by the willingness of RHK to work with us in custom-designing the scanner of the STM to accommodate the probes that we nanofabricate at Michigan. The students who have graduated from my group and moved on to independent academic positions are also considering purchasing an RHK instrument for their future work.
