Quantifying the atomic-level mechanics of single long physisorbed molecular chains
<p>Individual in situ polymerized fluorene chains 10—100 nm long linked by C—C bonds are pulled verticaly from an Au(111) substrate by the tip of a low-temperature atomic force microscope. The conformation of the selected chains is imaged before and after manipulation using scanning tunneling...
