Nanofabrication of Metallic Nanostructures by UHV-STM

The ultrahigh vacuum scanning tunneling microscope (UHV-STM) will be used in concert with chemical vapor deposition to create metallic nanostructures on the sub-100 A size scale. These structures will form the basis for nanoscale electronic devices based on quantum effects yet capable of operating at room temperatures.
