This paper concerns an experimental and theoretical study of the transition between two consecutive conductance plateaus as obtained in breaking gold contact experiments. The experimental measurements performed at 100 K with a scanning tunneling microscope and variable elongation speeds show that the transitions between consecutive plateaus can appear in(More)
Conductance-elongation curves of gold atomic wires are measured using a scanning tunneling microscope break junction technique at room temperature. Landauer's conductance plateaus are individually identified and statistically analyzed. Both the probabilities to observe and the lengths of the two last plateaus (at conductance values close to 2e(2)/h and(More)
