Abstract
SCANNING TUNNELING MICROSCOPY (STM) HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED TO BE VALUABLE IN THE STUDY OF SURFACES. THE RESULTS OF THESE SURFACE STUDIES INDICATE THAT STM CAN ALSO BE USEFUL FOR SURFACE MODIFICATION ON THE NANOMETER SCALE. HOWEVER, BEFORE THIS POTENTIAL CAN BE FULFILLED, IT MUST BE DEMONSTRATED THAT THE STM CAN BE USED REPRODUCIBLY FOR SOLUTION ETCHING. THE GOAL OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DEMONSTRATE THAT THE STM HAS THE CAPABILITY OF ETCHING GAAS AT THE SUBMICROMETER LEVEL.
