Lateral manipulation of single iron-adatoms with CO terminated tips by combined STM/AFM — •Julian Berwanger, Ferdinand Huber, and Franz Josef Giessibl — Institute for Experimental an Applied Physics, University of Regensburg, 93040 Regensburg

By positioning single iron adatoms with a scanning probe microscope on a Cu(111) surface, spin-based logical operators and quantum bits can be built on the atomic scale [1,2]. Building these devices requires a precise, controlled and reproducible mechanism for positioning single adatoms. CO terminated tips allows to image metal clusters with atomic resolution [3]. We performed lateral manipulation of single iron adatoms with a combination of scanning tunneling and atomic force microscopy using monoatomic Cu- and CO-terminated tips. For both types of tips we find that the force responsible for the manipulation is purely attractive and the predicted diffusion barrier of 28.5meV [4] is lowered due to the presence of the tips [5] by about 70%. Moreover, this work demonstrates the feasibility of using the high resolution capability of a CO tip [6] and simultaneously manipulating adatoms laterally without the need of changing the tip before.
