A scanning tunneling microscope was used to modify the surface structure of highly oriented pyrolytic graphite in air. By superimposing 0.1‐μs pulses on the substrate bias, we consistently manufactured hole‐hill combinations (‘‘bits’’) of 2–3 nm. A 40‐nm L‐shaped structure was created. We describe the experiments and relevant results.
