We present the first computational study targeting the nanomanipulation capability of dynamic surface force microscopy. Using a very simple but challenging model, an antisite defect on a III-V(110) surface, we show how the defect can be manipulated in both the attractive and the repulsive modes and identify the role of the tip-sample interaction: either lowering the barriers or pushing the system over a high stress state using exclusively the mechanical energy stored in the oscillating… CONTINUE READING
