Abstract

Clear as glass: The atomic structure of a metal-supported vitreous thin silica film was resolved using low-temperature scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). Based on the STM image, a model was constructed and the atomic arrangement of the thin silica glass determined (see picture). The total pair correlation function of the structural model shows good agreement with diffraction experiments performed on vitreous silica.
