Manipulation of atoms and molecules with the low temperature scanning tunneling microscope

Meyer, Gerhard ; Moresco, Francesca ; Hla, Saw W. ; Repp, Jascha ; Braun, Kai-Felix ; Fölsch, Stefan ; Rieder, Karl-Heinz


The controlled manipulation with a scanning tunneling microscope (STM) down to the scale of small molecules and single atoms allows the buildup of molecular and atomic nanostructures. In the case of the lateral manipulation of adsorbed species, in which only tip/particle forces are used, three different manipulation modes (pushing, pulling, sliding) can be discerned. Vertical manipulation of Xe ...
