From the interplay of STM imaging and DFT calculations we have investigated the isomerization of an alkene molecule on Cu(110) under ultrahigh vacuum conditions. We show that the on-surface cis-trans isomerization could efficiently occur well below room temperature, in which the copper surface is speculated to play a key role.
