The tip-induced desorption of benzene was investigated on the silicon (100) surface. Inelastic resonance tunneling was used to trigger the process as the potential energy surfaces were computed for the cluster model only. The desorption dynamics was analyzed using the quantum mechanical time-dependent wave calculations. Organic substrates were also investigated utilizing the same scanning tunneling microscope technique.
