Imaging of surface atoms revolving on elliptical trajectories

Abstract:

Achieving atomic resolution with an STM demands a noise-free environment, where mechanical vibrations especially must be damped out. Introducing such vibrations in the form of defined ultrasound consequently leads to image distortion. In particular, the topography is smeared out. By employing surface acoustic waves, which lead to an oscillation of surface atoms on elliptically polarized trajectories, this smearing-out is directed, thereby giving a projection of the ellipse on the sample plane...
