- STM is a non-contact technique which provides high resolution topographic information of conducting surfaces
- A small current between the STM tip and the sample allows us to probe the electronic states of the surface with atomic resolution
- STM can be performed in vacuum, allowing for precise measurement control, or ambient conditions; or in fluids
- Can be used conjunction with electrochemical techniques, such as electrodeposition of metals, the surface properties can be monitored in situ.
