Dataset for: "The nanometer limits of ballistic and diffusive hot-hole mediated nonlocal molecular manipulation"

This dataset contains data supporting the results presented in the paper "The nanometer limits of ballistic and diffusive hot-hole mediated nonlocal molecular manipulation". It includes the data used to plot each figure associated with this publication.

We report an experimental investigation into the surface-specific and experimental limits of the range of STM induced nonlocal molecular manipulation. We measure the spot-size of the nonlocal manipulation of bromobenzene molecules on the Si(111)-7×7 surface at room temperature at two voltages and for a wide range of charge-injection times (number of hot charge-carriers) from 1 s up to 500 s. The results conform to a initially ballistic, 6 to 10 nm, and then hot-hole diffusive, 10to 30 nm, transport away from the localised injection site. This work gives further confirmation that nonlocal molecular manipulation by STM directly reveals the ultrafast transport properties of hot-charge carriers at surfaces.
