Formation and properties of metallic atomic contacts

,
Lomonosov Moscow State University, Faculty of Physics, Vorobevy gory, Moscow, 119899, Russian Federation

One of most topical and promising areas in present-day physics is the study of the physical properties of metallic few-atom contacts, which are attractive not only for their application prospects, but also because of their amenability to verification through theory-versus-experiment comparison. This review mainly focuses on theoretical approaches to understanding the formation processes and properties of metallic atomic contacts.
