Construction of a variable micro-nano-gap instrument for chemical reaction studies and mimicking of possible NAE like structures
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Scanning tunnelling microscope is a versatile instrument to study surface atom structures and surface electron structures. The principles of its operation can be used to develop a variation where two surfaces of micron scale are brought in very close proximity of few atom lengths to each other. There are many technical challenges involved in such construction that will be reported. Experience in unconventional STM construction will be used in this case.
