Scanning tunneling potentiometry ( STP ) studies of gold islands on a thin carbon film

Abstract

The technique of scanning tunneling microscopy (STMJ has been used to study the spatial variation of the electric potential on thin film surfaces. Topography and potential distribution of the film surface are measured simultaneously. A lateral voltage gradient is obtained by applying a DC voltage bias to a metal film. With our experimental arrangement… (More)
