    Scanning tunneling microscopy reveals a free radical-induced surface chain reaction in the chlorination of nanoscale patterns on an otherwise H-passivated (masked) Si(100). While scanning probe methods can be used to pattern active surface regions with single-bond precision, follow-up selective...

    Scanning tunneling microscopy was used to investigate the reaction of octanethiolate self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) with atomic chlorine. We have found that exposing a SAM to low fluxes of radical Cl results primarily in the formation of new defects in areas with close-packed alkanethiolates,...

    We present a spin-polarized scanning tunneling microscope (Sp–STM) for imaging the magnetic in-plane component of magnetic surfaces. Magnetic in-plane sensitivity is obtained by using a ferromagnetic ring as a Sp–STM tip. By periodically switching the magnetization of the ring, the...
