Quantum well structures in thin metal films: simple model physics in reality?
The quantum wells formed by ultra-thin metallic films on appropriate metallic substrates provide a real example of the simple undergraduate physics problem in quantum mechanics of the `particle in aExpand

True nature of an archetypal self-assembly system: mobile Au-thiolate species on Au(111).
Alkanethiol self-assembled monolayer (SAM) phases on Au(111) have been assumed to involve direct S head group bonding to the substrate. Using x-ray standing wave experiments, we show the thiolateExpand

Determination of the local structure of glycine adsorbed on Cu(110)
Abstract Scanned-energy mode N 1s and O 1s photoelectron diffraction has been used to determine the local geometry of glycine adsorbed on Cu(110) in an ordered (3 × 2) phase. The results areExpand

The structure of the Au(111)/methylthiolate interface: new insights from near-edge x-ray absorption spectroscopy and x-ray standing waves.
The local structure of the Au(111)(square root(3) x square root(3))R30 degrees-methylthiolate surface phase has been investigated by S K-edge near-edge s-ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS) bothExpand

Atop adsorption site of sulphur head groups in gold-thiolate self-assembled monolayers
Abstract Using normal incidence X-ray standing wave (NIXSW) analysis, we show that the sulphur head group occupies the atop site for methyl-, butyl- and octyl-thiolates on Au(1 1 1), with a Au–SExpand
