Formation of a Nanoelectrode

H.W. Zandbergen

High resolution electron microscopy movie of the formation of a gap, starting with a bridge in a free-standing Au film. The hole in the upper right corner was made by ion beam etching and the one in the lower left by electron beam irradiation prior to the recording of the shown movie. Upon electron beam irradiation, a 2 nanometer gap is created.

To see the movie, please download (Flash, 700 kb).
