Project Details


The influence of the chemical modification of scanning tunnelling microscopy tips on image contrast is studied. This technique is applied to the identification of functional groups hardly visible otherwise. Self-assembled overlayers of molecules and dynamical phenonema at the liquid-solid interface are imaged.
