Abstract

C60 was purified and imaged utilizing scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM) in a constant current mode. By fixing the Fullerenes on the substrate (“frozen state” - no movement or rotation), direct imaging of C60 with atomic resolution was possible, showing one pentagon and one hexagon carbon ring of C60.
