Scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) offers a way to visualize individual atoms and molecules on surfaces. Recently, attention has focused on STM-based manipulation of surface moieties and on their electronic properties in metal junctions. This paper shows that electrons tunneling into the surface under normal scanning conditions induce migration of covalently bonded Br atoms on Si(100)-(2X1).
