Abstract

original image

Buckyballs, die im Dunkeln leuchten: Die Fluoreszenz- und Phosphoreszenzspektren einzelner C60-Moleküle in einem Rastertunnelmikroskop wurden durch First-Principles-Simulationen reproduziert (siehe Bild). Die Studien klärten die zugrundeliegenden Mechanismen auf und ermöglichten die korrekte Zuordnung der Spektren.
