Abstract:

We show how scanning tunneling microscopy can be used to determine aspects of transient mobility in the adsorption process, in chemical reactions, and energy transfer processes at surfaces. For adsorption from the gas phase both the mean accommodation length and the promptness of energy loss can be elucidated using real space imaging.
