Images of graphite have been recorded with a scanning tunneling microscope
operating in air at ambient pressure. The results, which are in agreement
with theory and previous experiments in vacuum, confirm that with
a surface such as graphite the tunneling microscopy in air can be
used to examine the geometry of the surface with a resolution that
is less than 2 Å.
