Properties & Interests Motivations Bismuth nanolines Haiku stripes Interests for 1D Nanolines templating Manganese chains CCBY:BotheredByBees(Flickr) Explore 1D experimentally Probe the Tomanaga-Luttinger liquid theory More versatile than systems on vicinal surfaces Interconnects for novel electronics Why 1D chains on Si(001)? Implement the infinite length limit condition addressed by theory 4 Si dimers wide, 1.54 nm ⊥ Si dimers Straight, no kinks Nearly defect free Length limited by defects and terraces Tunable line density Self-assembled No vicinal surface Independent of step edges Gapped substrate Industrially relevant surface Filled state 1 nm Low current 1 nm High current +2.5 V +2.0 V + 2.0 V 1 nm + 2.5 V y x y z 1D delocalized state close to the Si band gap Purely electronic effect Data Simulation Data Reproduce the 1D central state… … and predict it as delocalized along the nanoline Empty state Charge densities simulations Electronic effects : both central atoms are rised at high current Very good matching between STM simulation (integrated DFT) and experimental data Run along the nanolines Does not correspond to any atom position in the structure 1 nm Simulation Perfect 1D electronic model system ?
