Time-Resolved Scanning Tunneling Microscopy
Since the invention of scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) in 1982, the addition of high time resolution to STM has been the most challenging issue, and various time-resolved STM (TR-STM) methods have been considered and developed (Terada et al. in J Phys Condens Matter 22:264008–264015, 2010, Loth et al. in Science 329:1628–1630, 2010 [1, 2]).
