A supervacuum scanning tunnel microscope (STM) based on an ESO-03 Auger spectrometer has been created. The design allows replacement of samples and STM needles and, if necessary, various modifications of the sample surface without violating the vacuum conditions. STM measurement conditions are indicated, and topographic data of highly dispersed carbon materials and pyrolytic graphite surface subjected to Ar+ bombardment are presented.
