A scanning tunneling microscope stm is an instrument for imaging surfaces at the atomic levelits development in 1981 earned its inventors gerd binnig and heinrich rohrer at ibm zrich the nobel prize in physics in 1986 for an stm good resolution is considered to be 01 nm lateral resolution and 001 nm 10 pm depth resolution with this resolution individual atoms within materials . This book explains the operating principles of atomic force microscopy and scanning tunneling microscopy the aim of this book is to enable the reader to operate a scanning probe microscope successfully and understand the data obtained with the microscope the chapters on the scanning probe. Schematic of scanning tunneling microscopy stm tunneling tunneling is a quantum mechanical effect a tunneling current occurs when electrons move through a barrier that they classically shouldnt be able to move through in classical terms if you dont have enough energy to move over a barrier you wont. Scanning probe microscope spm is a branch of microscopy that forms images of surfaces using a physical probe that scans the specimen spm was founded in 1981 with the invention of the scanning tunneling microscope an instrument for imaging surfaces at the atomic levelthe first successful scanning tunneling microscope experiment was done by binnig and rohrer.
