    Abstract. We have used an ultra-high vacuum variable temperature scanning tunnelling microscope to study the Cu(111) surface at temperatures from 90 K to 300 K. After the sample is heated to 900 K, adatoms enriched at the surface. Around these adatoms ring-formed standing-wave features can be...
