Sample Conductivity's Influence on Oxidation by the Tip of AFM. V. Cambel & J. Soltys at the Slovak Academy of Sciences, Bratislava, Slovakia analyzed the role of the electric field distribution in the nano-oxidation process realized by the tip of AFM experimentally and theoretically. Authors show the importance of the sample conductivity and the water bridge in the process applied to bulk GaAs and Ga[Al]As heterostructures in both contact and noncontact AFM modes and the consequences for the lines witten.
