  1. A Primer on Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM)

    04 Apr 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Ron Reifenberger

    Scanning Probe Microscopes and their remarkable ability to provide three-dimensional maps of surfaces at the nanometer length scale have arguably been the most important tool in establishing the world-wide emergence of Nanotechnology. In this talk, the fundamental ideas behind the first scanning...

  6. Electrons in Two Dimensions: Quantum Corrals and Semiconductor Microstructures

    04 Dec 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Eric J. Heller

    The images generated by a scanning tunneling microscope are iconic. Some of the most famous are Don Eigler’s quantum corrals, which reveal not only the guest atoms on a surface but especially the interference patterns of electrons shuttling back and forth along the surface. To understand the...

  7. First Principles Non-Equilibrium Green's Function Modeling of Vacum and Oxide Barrier Tunneling

    01 Dec 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Kirk H. Bevan

    Vacuum and oxide barrier electron tunneling phenomena have been studied at length for several decades. Yet with electron device barrier widths now commonly measured in atomic units, complex quantum mechanical phenomena such as wavefunction coupling, surface states, and interface bonds have begun...
