    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...

    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...
