Abstract Title: Atomic Resolution Imaging with the Scanning Tunneling Microscope
Abstract: Participants will use the scanning tunneling microscope to image carbon atoms in highly ordered pyrolytic graphite (HOPG).  Experiment will demonstrate the setup of the easyScan STM, cutting an STM tip, and scanning HOPG to reveal the atomic lattice structure.  The atomic spacing will be measured.  Additionally, given more time, I/V curves will be demonstrated to show the quantum mechanical tunneling current dependence on voltage, and I/Z curves showing the tunneling current dependence on distance.
