Paper Abstract

A brief review of the basic principles and the theory of scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and spectroscopy (STS) as well as atomic force microscopy (AFM) is presented with emphasis on materials problem. The detailed spectroscopy and characteristic features of Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8 and Nd2-xCexCuO4-y (NCCO) single crystals in normal state are also discussed. In addition to STS studies, some examples of STM and AFM surface topography of NCCO single crystals are given.
