Abstract / Bemerkung
Employing the scanning-tunneling-microscope pulse technique with a tungsten tip, we studied the nanostructuring of Bi (0001) surfaces at room temperature. A controlled extraction of Bi and its reversible deposition is demonstrated by simply changing the pulse polarity. Periodic nanostructures of dots, holes, lines, and grooves were written in the point and line mode of the scanner which exhibit a relatively high stability over a period of up to 22 days. Our data indicate that during the nanostructuring a Bi nanobridge forms between tungsten tip and substrate on a time scale of similar to 100 mu s. (C) 2005 American Institute of Physics.
