Antimony Cluster Manipulation on the Si(001) Surface by Means of STM

Abstract

We present results of the manipulation of antimony clusters on Si(001) by means of a scanning tunneling microscope. By adjusting tip-sample separation and pulse voltage, an antimony cluster can be removed from the sample surface without damaging it. The success rate of the removed-cluster redeposition from the tip back onto the surface is 30%. In the remainder of the attempts a square shaped structure is created that had a hillock in the center. The hillock exhibits a metallic-like I-V curve. Such a structure cannot be created without an Sb cluster previously removed from the surface and located on the tip.
