Dr Adam Sweetman

I am the leader of the high resolution scanning probe group at the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Leeds. I currently hold a Royal Society University Research Fellowship, and my research interests are focused on the understanding and quantifying of the interactions that occur between single atoms and molecules via the use of low temperature scanning probe microscopes (in particular non-contact atomic force microscopy – NC-AFM), and their simulation via ab-initio calculations.

My teaching responsibilities include conveying the first-year undergraduate experimental laboratory and the MSc Project module. More information can be found on my group website at http://nca.fm
