Long-range electronic perturbations caused by defects using scanning tunneling microscopy

View publication

Abstract

Real-space observations of long-range electronic perturbations caused by defects have been made with scanning tunneling microscopy. The defects are isolated adsorbed molecules on the surface of graphite. These defects perturb the charge density, giving periodic oscillations similar to Friedel oscillations. The oscillations have a wavelength √3 times that of the graphite lattice, and the symmetry of the oscillations reflects the nature of the defect.
