To expand the capabilities of the microwave frequency alternating current scanning tunneling microscope to include the ability to study isolated adsorbates and highly reactive surfaces, we have developed a low temperature, ultrahigh vacuum alternating current scanning tunneling microscope. In this alternating current scanning tunneling microscope, we employ the reliable beetle-style sample approach mechanism with a number of other components unique to a low temperature scanning tunneling microscope. These include the sample transfer, delivery, retrieval, storage, sputtering, and heating systems. This alternating current scanning tunneling microscope has been operated at 77K and 4K.
