Abstract: The results of low temperature scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) investigations of a clean Ge(111) surface are presented. Bias dependent shifts of the atomic-scale structure caused by the (2 x 1) reconstruction of the Ge(111) surface are observed. A detailed comparison of experimental data with theoretical predictions based on the pi-bonded chain model indicates that inelastic tip-sample interaction plays a significant role in STM imaging of the Ge(111)-(2 x 1) reconstructed surface.
