Zusammenfassung, Abstract
By means of STM measurements and fully self-consistent transport calculations we analyze how STM trajectories for the mapping of nanostructures on surfaces are affected by the atomic structure of the tip. For the particular case of carbon nanotubes we show that considerable distortions of the STM trajectory with respect to the actual structure, position and diameter of the nanotube can occur for certain tip geometries. Comparison between theory and experiment can allow to characterize and correct these distortions.
