ABSTRACT
Images of graphite have been recorded with a scanning tunneling microscope operating in air at ambient pressure. The results, which are in agreement with theory and previous experiments in vacuum, confirm that with a surface such as graphite the tunneling microscopy in air can be used to examine the geometry of the surface with a resolution that is less than 2 Ã….
