Abstract
We report low-temperature measurements of the electrical transport properties of single-atom and tunnel contacts of Zn. We present a variant of the mechanically controllable break-junction technique that comprises a whisker as the central part. This technique combines the possibility to fabricate reproducibly single-atom contacts and well-characterized electronic and lattice properties of the electrodes. From tunneling current-voltage characteristics, we deduce a well-pronounced quasiparticle spectrum for whiskers, while for standard notched-wire and thin-film break junctions the spectrum is smeared out.
