STM Manipulation of Single Atoms and Molecules on Insulating Films

Repp, Jascha ; Meyer, Gerhard


This chapter reviews the spectacular manipulations of single atoms and molecules using a low temperature scanning tunnelling microscope (STM). Electronic decoupling of the adsorbed atoms and molecules from a metallic substrate by introducing a thin insulating film of alkali halides (NaCl) enables (i) to control the charge states of single atoms (Au, Ag), (ii) to directly image molecular orbitals, ...
