Chemical bond formation showing a transition from physisorption to chemisorption

Huber, Ferdinand ; Berwanger, Julian ; Polesya, Svitlana ; Mankovsky, Sergiy ; Ebert, Hubert ; Giessibl, Franz J.


Surface molecules can transition from physisorption through weak van der Waals forces to a strongly bound chemisorption state by overcoming an energy barrier. We show that a carbon monoxide (CO) molecule adsorbed to the tip of an atomic force microscope enables a controlled observation of bond formation, including its potential transition from physisorption to chemisorption. During imaging of ...
