Virtual Scanning Tunneling Microscope


After the second STM simulator VI is completed, we will finish the prototype by combining the two VIs with our in-house STM in a field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based measurement system. It is our objective to create a prototype in which each physical component of the system (for example, laser, STM scan-head, current preamplifier, microwave spectrum analyzer, etc.) may be separately exchanged with its simulator. This will provide real-time deterministic control of multiple simulta- neous functions and facilitate the assembly, maintenance, debugging, characterization, and optimization of the prototype.


Conclusion


This article describes a LabVIEW-based virtual scanning tunneling microscope (STM) that is available as a free-download at our company website. This software simulates the full operation of an STM including imaging at the atomic scale.
