Title: Scanning tunneling spectroscopic studies of superconducting NbN single crystal thin films at 4. 2 K

Abstract

This paper reports on a Low Temperature Scanning Tunneling Microscope (LTSTM) constructed to study the microscopic properties of superconductors. It has atomic resolution from room temperature to 4.2 K. Conductance spectra obtained between a Pt tip and a NbN thin film agreed well with theoretical curves based on the BCS theory.
