    We report on a fabrication technique for scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) tips for in situ electrochemical investigations. Unwanted Faradaic currents were minimized by insulating the STM tips with Apiezon wax. Cyclic voltammetry showed Apiezon wax to be inert in various electrolytes.

  • A scanning tunneling microscope with a wide sampling range. Hipps, K. W.; Fried, Glenn; Fried, Dale // Review of Scientific Instruments;Jul1990, Vol. 61 Issue 7, p1869 

    Construction of a simple scanning tunneling microscope (STM) is described. This STM is suitable for atmospheric, controlled atmosphere, and high vacuum (but not UHV) work. This STM is especially well suited for determining surface topography on the 0.1 nm scale when images must be obtained over...
