Abstract : Atomic resolution tunneling microscopy can be done under nonpolar liquids. Two possible areas of application are explored: lithography and imaging air sensitive materials. The lithography was demonstrated by writing a 20 A x 40 A wide and 20 A deep hole onto a gold surface. The imaging of air sensitive materials was demonstrated by imaging Gallium Arsenide.
