Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


In this chapter, the characteristic I-V curves modified by vibrational excitations that were observed in the hydroxyl dimer [(OH)\(_2\)] on Cu(110) and the product consisting of one NO molecule and two H\(_2\)O molecules described in Chap.  4 are reported.
