We report on theoretical studies of one-dimensional (1D) monatomic metal nanostructures coupled to metal substrates, which support surface states. The aim of the work is to demonstrate general features of electronic structure, magnetic properties, and interactions in such systems. We start from simple finite monatomic chains. It is shown that electronic confinement in 1D metallic chains can be observed at energies of projected band gaps of a metallic substrate. At other energies the confinement… Expand
