Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) study of the local electronic properties of artificially fabricated Cr clusters having up to three Cr atoms on a gold surface was carried out. A behavior consistent with the Kondo effect in individual, artificially fabricated Cr trimers at a surface was observed. Experimentally observed switching in Cr trimers was explained by predicted variations in trimer magnetic behavior via small changes in trimer acoustic structure.
