ABSTRACT
The present letter describes a method to make a spin-polarized scanning tunneling microscopy tip by applying voltage pulses between a W tip and a magnetic sample. This spin-polarized tip has the similar characteristics as an Fe-coated W tip, which was confirmed by observations of antiferromagnetically coupled ferromagnetic Mn(001) layers (> 3 ML) grown on an Fe(001) whisker at 370 K. Furthermore, we demonstrate that these voltage pulses can vary the tip magnetization direction.

    Abstract. We have made a ferromagnetic (Ni) dot structure buried in semiconductor quantum wires by two-step surface modifications with STM. The wire was a type of split-gate, and the hole in which the Ni was buried was in the form of a small reversed cone (200 nm upper diameter and 100 nm...

    Time-resolved, in-situ-applied STM has been used to study the epitaxial growth of iron on W(1 1 0) at room temperature. By this way, sequences of STM images show directly the atomistics of the growth process on the surface. The first layer of iron on W(1 1 0) grows pseudomorphically without a...
