Talking point. The scanning tunneling probe as a feynman ‘sewing’ machine?

Authors


Abstract

Research News/Talking Point: The prospect of using the scanning tunneling microscope (STM) to ‘stitch’ together molecules of, for example, thiophene or pyrrole one by one to form macromolecular chains, or in the production of organic superconductors from Langmuir-Blodgett arrays containing metal ions is discussed.
