Imaging and Manipulating Molecular Orbitals
Imaging and Manipulating Molecular Orbitals celebrates the 60th anniversary of the first image of a single molecule by E. Müller. This book summarizes the advances in the field from various groups around the world who use a broad range of experimental techniques: scanning probe microscopy (STM and AFM), field emission microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, attosecond tomography and photoemission spectroscopy. The book is aimed at those who are interested in the field of molecular orbital imaging and manipulation. Included in the book are a variety of experimental techniques in combination with theoretical approaches which describe the spatial distribution and energies of the molecular orbitals. The goal is to provide the reader with an up-to-date summary on the latest developments in this field from various points of view.
Provides an overview of the state-of-the art and the latest developments in the imaging of molecular orbitalsCovers a wide range of complementary experimental techniques, in reciprocal and real space, in combination with theoretical approachesDiscusses the influence of molecular orbitals and their manipulation on molecular physical and chemical properties
