The research of the proposed project focuses on different heteroepitaxial metal on semiconductor and metal on metal systems where the role of reduced dimensionality, confined film geometry and structural mismatch with the substrate has a substantial impact on the film properties. Multitechnique experiments will be performed at the ALOISA beamline (ELETTRA synchrotron light source) to enlighten the relation between the local geometrical structure and electronic and magnetic behaviour of the grown films. Overlayers of Pb, Sn, In and Fe on various substrates will be studied by means of Grazing Incidence X-ray diffraction, angle resolved photoemission and photoelectron diffraction. The impact of quantum size effects in collective motion of thin metallic films will be studied by thermal He atom scattering available at the TASC-INFM laboratory for surface physics and eventually at the HASPES branchline of the ALOISA beamline. The spectromicroscopical studies of inhomogeneous heteroepitaxial interfaces will be studied at the ESCAMICROSCOPY beamline (ELETTRA synchrotron light source).
