    A generalized Rayleigh-Ritz (RR) method combined with the Galerkin (RRG) functional space approximation is elaborated by using the extended and modified Laguerre functions manifold for the weak solution of the asymmetric grain-boundary thermal grooving problem with the Dirichlet boundary. This...

    We examined the growth and stability of ice layers on Ni(111) up to ~7 molecular layers (ML) thick using scanning tunneling microscopy. At low coverage, films were comprised of ~ 1 nm wide two-dimensional (2D) clusters. Only above ~0.5 ML did patches of continuous 2D layers emerge, coexisting...

    The geometric and electronic structures of the Bi thin film grown on Si(111) were investigated by using scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy. We have found two types of edges, one of which hosts an electronic state localized one-dimensionally. We also revealed the energy dispersion of...

    Growth of unexpected phases from a composite target of BiFeO3:BiMnO3 and/or BiFeO3:BiCrO3 has been explored using pulsed laser deposition. The Bi2FeMnO6 tetragonal phase can be grown directly on SrTiO3 (STO) substrate, while two phases (S1 and S2) were found to grow on LaAlO3 (LAO) substrates...

    Nanometer-scale recording on an organic-complex thin film with a scanning tunneling microscope (STM) under ambient conditions is demonstrated. The recording marks are made by applying external voltage pulses between the tip and the highly ordered pyrolytic graphite substrate. A 30×30 nm2 STM...

    We show that ultrahigh-vacuum low-energy electron microscopy and scanning tunneling microscopy can be used to image residual uniaxial strain fields on (001) surfaces of SiGe heterostructures. We find that the surface crosshatch morphology on these films is highly correlated with large spatial...

    Scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) was used in the constant height mode for analyzing the local composition of (RuO[sub 2] , TiO[sub 2] ) mixed oxide thin films. A digital processing of the images leads to a bipolar distribution of values of current that reflects the difference in conductivity...
