Example text

Four probe STM The great interest in nanoscale science and technology is focused on manipulating nanoscale material and measuring the electrical transport, optical and mechanical properties. The multi-tip tunneling microscopy technology has been shown to be a versatile tool for electrical transport measurements at the nanometer scale. For general purpose resistance and I–V curve measurements, 2-point electrical measurements are normally used. To determine the resistance, Ohm’s law R = V /I is used; a known current flows through the unknown resistance,, and the voltage that develops across the resistance is measured; the resistance is determined by dividing the measured voltage by the source current.

1. Conventional STM tip The formation of a useful tip is the key to a productive tunneling microscope. The operating characteristics of the entire microscope are dependent upon the single atom at the very end of the probe tip. In general, a relatively hard material is used in tip fabrication because contact between tip and sample surface can occur during scanning. Tungsten (W) tips are widely used in STM studies, particularly under UHV (ultrahigh vacuum) conditions. However, the electrochemical etching of W tips involves the formation of an unwanted oxide layer, hence other noble metals including platinum and gold are also viable candidate materials for tip-making due to their inert properties.

2× periodicity) along the bright As-dimer rows at the top layer separated by 8 A [−1 1 0] direction is clearly observed in Fig. 7(c). It is obvious that the periodicity is localized with the rows appearing straight in some sections and zigzagged in others. The 3× periodicity in the [−1 1 0] direction is clearly seen in Fig. 7(d). The STM results show that (6 × 6) structure represents a transitional phase and the proposed models are idealized in that they only represent local periodicity observed in the images.
