    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...

    An anomalously large periodicity has been observed in scanning tunneling microscope images of a (00.1) graphite sample. The unusual contrast has hexagonal symmetry, a periodicity of 7.7±0.2 nm and is superimposed on the usual a=0.246 nm atomic spacing of graphite. Current-voltage curves...
