Scanning tunneling microscopy/spectroscopy on self-assembly of a glycine/Cu(111) nanocavity array

Author affiliations

Abstract

The step-by-step analysis of a hierarchical self-assembly revealed the incorporation of nanocavity blocks in a metastable orientation to stabilize the organized array. The confinement of 2D electrons by a quantum corral was verified. Furthermore, manipulation of an isolated C60 molecule was realized using nanocavities of ∼1.3 nm diameter as a template.
