Gerd Binnig, Heinrich Rohrer: Scanning tunneling microscope. International Business Machines Corporation, Ronald L Drumheller, August 10, 1982: US04343993 (186 worldwide citation)

The vacuum tunnel effect is utilized to form a scanning tunneling microscope. In an ultra-high vacuum at cryogenic temperature, a fine tip is raster scanned across the surface of a conducting sample at a distance of a few Angstroms. The vertical separation between the tip and sample surface is autom ...
