Supporting Information

Supporting Information includes derivation of the force expression given in the main text. A schematic flowchart of the simulation execution is also provided. A detailed discussion about the geometric method for determining the positions of the background substrate atoms is given as well. The plot showing the effect of using the cut-off radii and look-up tables in the simulation is also provided. Conductance and trajectory data recorded during experiments are shown as 3D plots. A full sequence of the manipulation shown in the simulation is also available as a video file.
