- Nanostructure fabrication: physical and chemical methods
- Matter at low temperatures, ultrahigh vacuum, low signal amplification
- Actuators and transducers as experimental tools
- Electronic transport
- Microscopy with atomic resolution: from electron microscopy to scannig probes
- Optics at the nanoscale
- Excitation spectroscopy: from electron spectroscopy to synchrotron based approaches
