Helium atom diffraction experiments carried out under ultrahigh vacuum conditions on a freshly cleaved (001) surface of KTaO3 reveal metastable features which decay over a period of several hours. The initial He diffraction pattern contains large scattering intensity satellite peaks very close to the specular reflection beam. As time from cleaving elapses,(More)
Helium atom scattering experiments have been carried out on the (001) surface of KTaO(3) doped with 6, 10 and 15% Nb, produced by cleaving in situ single crystal samples. Several phenomena were observed through He atom diffraction measurements, including metastable behavior immediately after cleaving, reconstruction of a fraction of the surface to (2 × 1)(More)
