This article describes the in situ scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) operated at electrode–electrolyte interfaces. It is demonstrated that in situ STM makes it possible to monitor with atomic resolution a wide variety of electrode processes such as the adsorption of inorganic and organic species and the dissolution and deposition of metals and semiconductors. Owing to limitations on space, the focus is on selected topics and mainly on our own experimental results.
