The electronic properties of graphene edges have been predicted to depend on their crystallographic orientation. The so-called zigzag (ZZ) edges haven been extensively explored theoretically and proposed for various electronic applications. However, their experimental study remains challenging due to the difficulty in realizing clean ZZ edges without(More)
Using low-temperature scanning tunneling microscopy, we show that monolayer hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) on Ir(111) acts as ultrathin insulating layer for organic molecules, while simultaneously templating their self-assembly. Tunneling spectroscopy experiments on cobalt phthalocyanine (CoPC) reveal narrow molecular resonances and indicate that the charge(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o Advance payment systems represent a pricing innovation, in which companies predict customers' future consumption for the following year and then bill a series of monthly, uniform advance payments. Any difference between predicted and actual consumption gets settled at the end of the year with a refund or extra payment. Companies thus(More)
We present the first results from the science demonstration phase for the Hi-GAL survey, the Herschel key program that will map the inner Galactic plane of the Milky Way in 5 bands. We outline our data reduction strategy and present some science highlights on the two observed 2 • × 2 • tiles approximately centered at l = 30 • and l = 59 •. The two regions(More)
The combination of several materials into heterostructures is a powerful method for controlling material properties. The integration of graphene (G) with hexagonal boron nitride (BN) in particular has been heralded as a way to engineer the graphene band structure and implement spin- and valleytronics in 2D materials. Despite recent efforts, fabrication(More)
π-conjugated organic molecules tend to adsorb in a planar configuration on graphene irrespective of their charge state. In contrast, here we demonstrate charging-induced strong structural relaxation of tetrafluorotetracyanoquinodimethane (F4TCNQ) on epitaxial graphene on Ir(111) (G/Ir(111)). The work function modulation over the graphene moiré unit cell(More)
