    Abstract. We have observed an anomalous superperiod on a highly oriented pyrolytic graphite (HOPG) surface by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) with period about 1.8 nm and amplitude about four times the ordinary atomic amplitude. The orientation between this structure and the atomic lattice...

    Abstract. Epitaxial Ag(100) thin films were prepared on Fe/GaAs(100) by room temperature deposition. The films were examined by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) before and alter an annealing procedure at 500-600 K. The as-grown films display percolating grains with channels, reaching down to...

    Ultrathin (sub-monolayer to 12 monolayers) AlN nanosheets are grown epitaxially by plasma assisted molecular beam epitaxy on Ag(111) single crystals. Electron diffraction and scanning tunneling microscopy provide evidence that AlN on Ag adopts a graphite-like hexagonal structure with a larger...
