Abstract

Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) is a technique to study surfaces atom by atom. To be able to observe the arrangements of atoms and even their color by STM is of great assistance in understanding surfaces and controlling their state. Beyond this, the STM can also be used as a tool to modify surfaces or particle and molecules deposited on surfaces. This opens the door for new devices, not only smaller ones but also those working with different principles, for example, the Atomic Force Microscope might have the potential of extending possibilities to insulating materials. © 1988, Walter de Gruyter.
