Abstract [en]

Monoatomic chain formation for Ag, Au, Pd and Pt has been investigated using a model for the tip structure. First-principles calculations, mostly spin polarized, were performed within the framework of the Density Functional theory. Results are presented and discussed on the basis of the electronic structure. Tendencies for chain formation were noted for Ag, Au and Pt.
