Tripodal molecules consisting of a tetrasubstituted adamantane with three phenylacetylene legs and a reversibly photoswitching apex were designed as "single molecular tips" for both chemical and topographical characterization of the substrate surface. By covalent attachment onto gold-coated AFM tips through three S-Au bonds, these rigid tripodal molecules(More)
A tripod molecule with an azobenzene arm was designed as a single molecular tip for noncontact atomic force microscopy (NC-AFM). The azobenzene moiety showed photoisomerization that enabled measurements of the same position of the sample by different tip apexes with different interactions. Photoswitching behavior of the molecule synthesized and adsorbed on(More)
