Quantitative STM imaging of metal surfaces
Many deductions made about STM images are based upon the model of Tersoff and Hamann, in which images are given in principal by a combination of surface atomic positions and local charge density. There is a now a need for a fuller understanding of this technique in order to explain experimental evidence which indicates that the tip and sample can interact strongly during normal imaging.
In order to investigate the fundamental STM imaging process, a method for deducing the tunnel ba...Expand abstract
