Electron emission from an individual, supported C/sub 60/ molecule.
Physical Review B-Condensed Matter, vol.47, no.12, 15 March 1993, pp.7546-53. USA.
The electron emission properties of a single C/sub 60/ molecule supported on a W field-emission tip are reported. Using standard models, values for the size, effective work function, and desorption temperature of C/sub 60/ were obtained. Energy distributions of electrons emitted from C/sub 60/ exhibit a narrow two-peaked spectrum and indicate a splitting of the highest occupied molecular-orbital level. (46 References).
