Fast STM

FAST STM is an add-on module that can be used to provide fast imaging capabilities to virtually any scanning probe microscope. The module has been designed in order to be integrated into existing conventional STM systems in a completely non-invasive fashion, allowing for immediate and seamless switching between slow and fast scanning modes.    

 

Applications

Some of the examples among the infinite variety of processes that this setup allows for investigation with a high temporal resolution in order to access non-equilibrium dynamics by STM are as follows:

  • Surface diffusion
  • Phase transitions
  • Self-assembly phenomena
  • Film growth and etching
  • Chemical reactions
  • Conformational changes of molecules
