The ongoing miniaturization of (components of) electronic devices will eventually need a totally new preparation route for these (components of) devices. It is thought that the ultimate miniaturization requires the use of functional molecules and their incorporation into nanostructured templates. For that reason it is interesting to study nanostructured surfaces and the behaviour of adsorbed molecules on these surfaces. In this dissertation results are described on two different nanostructured surfaces. Their structural and electronic properties were studied with scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and scanning tunneling spectroscopy (STS).
