Abstract

The individual organic molecules on the Si(100) surface can be determined by inducing electron-stimulated hydrogen desorption from the Si(100)-2×1:H surface using an ultrahigh vacuum scanning tunneling microscope (UHVSTM). Feedback controlled lithography (FCL) can also be used to produce arbitrary geometries of dangling bonds on the hydrogen-passivated surface. These techniques were used to isolate and image norbornadiene and copper phthalocyanine molecules on the Si(100) surface.
