Principles of Electron Tunneling Spectroscopy

Second Edition

Second Edition

E. L. Wolf

International Series of Monographs on Physics

  • First unified and comprehensive treatment of Scanning Tunneling Microscopy and Scanning Tunneling Spectroscopy
  • Concise summary of status of high temperature superconductors, including iron based materials
  • First unified treatment of tunnelling as tool for conventional and high temperature superconductors
  • First summary of the advances in high temperature superconductivity research based on imaging techniques, including gap maps on the nanometer scale
  • First summary clarifying the complementary information from scanning tunnelling spectroscopy, including Fourier Transform analysis, and Angle Resolved Photoemission Spectroscopy, ARPES

New to this Edition:

  • Fully embraces the advances represented by the scanning tunnelling microscope and, especially, scanning tunnelling spectroscopy.
  • Stunning images of single atoms and spectral images of impurity states in high temperature superconductors.
  • Provides background and current status for applications of Scanning Tunneling Microscopy and Spectroscopy to single atoms and molecules, including determination of bonding energies and vibrational frequencies.
  • Introduces applications to high temperature superconductivity and describes the current status.
  • New section covers astounding advances in instrumentation, which now routinely provide atomic resolution, and, in addition, developments in imaging and image processing, such as Fourier Transform Scanning Tunneling Spectroscopy.
