    It is demonstrated that scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) images often contain three-dimensional ghost images of the tunneling tip. These ghost images directly reflect the shape of the tip, as is proven by comparing them with tip indentations made in Si. Tip images appear as a set of identical...

    The distribution of the tunneling current in the semiclassical mode of operation of the scanning tunneling microscope is studied using an axially symmetric 3-D tip. The tip is taken as an equipotential of a dipole, thus giving an analytical form for the potential and the field lines between the...
