    Abstract. The (2 x 5) carbon overlayer structure on Co(1120) has been studied by STM at 300 K. The structure was obtained by adsorbing and dehydrogenating up to 20 L C[sub 2]H[sub 4] at 470-520 K. The STM images display the (2 x 5) overlayer as buckled rows of protrusions perpendicular to the...

    The structure of graphene on Ni(110) was studied using scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and low-energy electron diffraction spectroscopy. STM images show a Moire structure, depending on the orientation of the domains making up the graphene layer. A simple model has been proposed which permits...

    Manipulation of Ag nanocrystals derived from up to 200 000 atoms was performed using the tip of a scanning tunneling microscope. By varying the scanning conditions, it was possible to move them laterally on contamination-free Si(111)-7×7 surfaces or to remove them. In both cases, thin Ag...

    The topography and electronic structure of a semiconducting carbon nanotube with a sharp bend is studied by scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy. From the increased height it is concluded that the nanotube is ‘buckled’, i.e. collapsed due to very strong bending. Detailed...

    The surface of carbon nanotubes was studied on an atomic resolution level in a scanning tunneling microscope (STM) operating under atmospheric conditions. The nanotubes were synthesized from a carbon mix of high reaction ability. Factors determining distortion of the STM image are analyzed and...
