Abstract:
The scanning tunnelling microscope has been an extremely successful experimental tool for nanoscience because of its ability to image surfaces of material with atomic-scale spatial resolution. In recent years this has been combined with the use of low temperatures, culminating in the ability to reposition individual atoms at will and build nanostructures one atom at a time.
