Molecular-scale control of unbound and bound states of C60 molecules is achieved at room temperature. Using this method, single-molecule-level writing, erasing, and rewriting bits are demonstrated: A single surface C60 molecule represents “1” or “0” of binary data depending on whether the C60 molecule is depressed due to dimerization or trimerization with an underlying C60 molecule or not.
