Assembly, Chirality, and Polymorphism of Large Molecules on Metal Surfaces.

Iski, Erin.

Abstract: The invention of the Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM) by Binnig and Rohrer at IBM in 1981 revolutionized the field of surface chemistry. This instrument operates by scanning a very sharp metal tip over a surface, ultimately generating an image of the sample. Unlike conventional microscopes, STM does not rely on using visible light to image the sample, but rather electrical current; th... read more
