The aim of this project is to explore possibilities to control the spin by means of chiral molecules and to form structures on surface to enhance chiral-induced spin selectivity effect (CISS) under UHV conditions. We will employ low temperature scanning probe spectroscopy techniques to identify the selectivity of helical molecules towards spin-polarized electrons. Helical conglomerates will be formed by on-surface-chemical reactions and will be examined for CISS effect. This will allow us to understand the relation between chirality and spin-selectivity for single molecules and their structures.
