The growing interest in single wall carbon nanotubes (SWNT) is related to their prospected applications of their unique possibilities in upcoming nanotechnology (1). To study structural properties of SWNTs down to the atomic scale dynamic mode force microscopy is well suited.

In a first step, we developed a technique to prepare SWNTs on HOPG. Tapping Mode Imaging in ambient conditions showed a homogeneous SWNT distribution on atomically flat and well defined graphite (HOPG) with only negligible small amounts of contamination. Although most of SWNTs appeared as bundles or ropes, we found a sufficient density of individual SWNTs. In a second step, we took advantage of the increased resolution of dynamic mode force microscopy and spectroscopy in ultrahigh vacuum and used a home-built low noise and very stable low-temperature force microscope to resolve the atomic structure of individual tubes.
