Atomic motions on metal surfaces observed by scanning tunneling microscope (STM)

研究成果: Article査読

抄録

Scanning tunneling microscope (STM) has been increasingly applied to elucidate dynamic motions of atoms on metal surfaces and revealed novel characteristics of the atomic motions and their physical mechanisms. Here, a review is given of our present understanding of the atomic motions on metal surfaces obtained from recent STM observations, particularly concentrating on the following three topics ; (1) atomic motions at steps of clean metal surfaces,(2) long-range mass transport during metal thin-film growth and (3) surface kinetics of each adatom of nitrogen and oxygen. Finally, a future view of the STM approach to surface dynamic processes is described.
