Lateral adsorbate-adsorbate interactions result in variation of the desorption rate constants with coverage. This effect can be studied in great detail from the shape of a multi-isotherm. To produce the multi-isotherm, the temperature is increased in a (semi)stepwise fashion to some temperature, followed by maintaining this temperature for a prolonged time.(More)
The influence of carbon on the adsorption of CO from a Rh(100) single crystal has been studied by a combination of experimental techniques: Temperature Programmed Desorption (TPD), Low Energy Electron Diffraction (LEED), and High Resolution Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy (HREELS). These experimental techniques were combined with a computational approach(More)
The interaction between adsorbates is a key issue in surface science, because these interactions can influence strongly the properties of chemisorbed species with consequences for the thermodynamics and kinetics of surface processes. The simplest representation of adsorbate-adsorbate interactions is based on the assumption that all interactions are pairwise(More)
We present a kinetic Monte Carlo lattice gas model including top and bridge sites on a square lattice, with pairwise lateral interactions between the adsorbates. In addition to the pairwise lateral interactions we include an additional interaction: an adsorbate is forbidden to adsorb on a bridge site formed by two surface atoms when both surface atoms are(More)
