Arsenic Atom in SiliconSingle substitutional arsenic atom in silicon. We have attributed the bright cross shape in this image to the mapping of the wave function of a single arsenic atom in its neutral charge state. The dimensions of the image are ~ 7 nm x 5.5 nm.

Quantum DotThis image shows at atomic-scale a quantum dot fabricated by removing 5 hydrogen atoms from a H-terminated Si(001) surface. All three images show the same physical structure probed at different energies, and what is observed are the bound states of the quantum dot. These images are each approximately 5 nm x 5 nm.
