The excitation of molecules on solid surfaces leads to various energetic processes, such as transfer, conversion, and dissipation. Thus, a detailed understanding of the excited quantum states of the molecules is crucial to improve and develop organic energy conversion devices based on (opto)electronic and/or (photo)chemical processes. Our research focuses on (1) real-space observation of surface reaction processes at the single-molecule level, (2) single-molecule measurement of quantum states involved in the processes, and (3) exploration of the selective control of reaction pathways and physicochemical properties of molecular interfaces.
