STM on Metals

Chapter
Part of the Springer Series in Surface Sciences book series (SSSUR, volume 20)

Abstract

This chapter presents a review of studies of clean metal surfaces by scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy. The operating principles of the scanning tunneling microscope for small metallic corrugations are explained. Various spectroscopies are described and compared with theory. Some examples of past accomplishments on metal surfaces are given.
