Centre for Interdisciplinary Surface Spectroscopy
Welcome to the SCISS research pages
The Scottish Centre for Interdisciplinary Surface Spectroscopy (SCISS) is a collaborative centre established in 2008 at the University of St Andrews by the Scottish Funding Council (SFC), through an SRDG grant (£1.65M SFC, and £0.95M University of St Andrews). It focuses on real- and momentum-space resolved electron spectroscopies applied to complex materials.
brings together 6 research groups from the
University of St
Andrews to form a cluster of excellence in solid state physics,
solid state chemistry, and characterisation of functional materials. Our
competences are multidisciplinary and cover: correlated electron
physics, heterogeneous catalysis, molecular electronics, density
functional theory, graphene, topological phases, supramolecular architectures, and much
