Investigation of graphite surfaces by scanning tunneling microscopy


Scanning Tunneling Microscopy experiments on pyrolytic graphite at low voltages VT≈0 reveal an anomalous surface corrugation. It can be understood from the energy dependent corrugation of the local density of states near EF, in good qualitative agreement with theory.

The high lateral resolution of < 2 Å and the observed giant corrugations seem to be adequately described by models which consider the special structure of the Fermi surface of graphite and its elastic properties.
