The design and performance of a variable-temperature scanning tunneling microscope ͑STM͒ is presented. The microscope operates from 8 to 350 K in ultrahigh vacuum. The thermally compensated STM is suspended by springs from the cold tip of a continuous flow cryostat and is completely surrounded by two radiation shields. The design allows for in situ dosing and irradiation of the sample as well as for the exchange of samples and STM tips. With the STM feedback loop off, the drift of thedoi:10.1063/1.1149555 fatcat:j3v2eokm45d7xnpf6ixcqgvab4
