Abstract

Constant height repulsive (pushing mode) manipulation of a C-60 molecule covalently bound to the Si(001) surface is modelled using ab initio density functional theory, with the scanning tunneling microscope tip included explicitly in the calculations. The formation of chemical bonds between the tip and the molecule is demonstrated. The bonds between the molecule, tip and surface are constantly rearranging, so that a continuous manipulation process is possible. Tip-induced manipulation considered here is compared with the tip-free model, and the effects due to the tip are discussed.
