Functionalizing a metal tip with a single CO molecule (CO tip) leads to an unprecedented spatial resolution of small organic molecules by frequency-modulation atomic force microscopy (FM-AFM) at low temperatures. O-terminated Cu tips (CuOx tips) show comparable imaging capabilities as CO tips but exhibit a much stiffer apex. So far, to verify tip functionalization with oxygen (i.e., CuOx tips), ...
