Controlling the Charge State of Individual Gold Adatoms

Repp, Jascha ; Meyer, Gerhard ; Olsson, Fredrik E. ; Persson, Mats


The nature and control of individual metal atoms on insulators are of great importance in emerging atomic-scale technologies. Individual gold atoms on an ultrathin insulating sodium chloride film supported by a copper surface exhibit two different charge states, which are stabilized by the large ionic polarizability of the film. The charge state and associated physical and chemical properties ...
