A thin film of copper on the fivefold surface of Al-Pd-Mn forms a structure that is uniaxially commensurate with the aperiodic structure of the substrate. This structure has been analyzed using low-energy electron diffraction and is found to consist of a vicinal surface of a body-centered tetragonal (bct) (100) structure. This bct(100) structure has lattice(More)
Recent studies show that structures based on the traditional "icelike" water bilayer are not stable on flat transition metal surfaces and, instead, more complex wetting layers are formed. Here we show that an ordered bilayer can be formed on a SnPt(111) alloy template and determine the structure of the water layer by low energy electron diffraction. Close(More)
The geometry of adsorbed C(60) influences its collective properties. We report the first dynamical low-energy electron diffraction study to determine the geometry of a C(60) monolayer, Ag(111)-(2 square root of 3 x 2 square root of 3) 30 degrees -C(60), and related density functional theory calculations. The stable monolayer has C(60) molecules in vacancies(More)
The growth of Bi on Ag(111) induces different surface structures, including (√3 × √3)R30° surface alloy, Bi-(p × √3) overlayer and Bi(110) thin film, as a function of increasing Bi coverage. Here we report the study of electronic states of these structures using core level and valence band photoemission spectroscopy at room temperature. The sp-derived(More)
The multilayer relaxation of the stepped Cu(5 1 1) surface has been studied by quantitative low-energy electron diffraction and analyzed using the CLEED program package. Relaxations with respect to the bulk interlayer spacing of 0.6934 Å are -9.5%, -10.4%, +8.2% and -1.8% for the first four interlayer spacings, respectively (negative sign corresponds to(More)
The intermetallic compound InPd (CsCl type of crystal structure with a broad compositional range) is considered as a candidate catalyst for the steam reforming of methanol. Single crystals of this phase have been grown to study the structure of its three low-index surfaces under ultra-high vacuum conditions, using low energy electron diffraction (LEED),(More)
Due to the peculiar nature of the atomic order in quasicrystals, examining phase transitions in this class of materials is of particular interest. Energetic particle irradiation can provide a way to modify the structure locally in a quasicrystal. To examine irradiation-induced phase transitions in quasicrystals on the atomic scale, we have carried out(More)
The determination of quasicrystal QC surface structures is a challenge to current surface structure techniques. Low-energy electron diffraction LEED is the primary technique for the determination of periodic surface structures, but application of dynamical LEED to quasicrystals requires the use of many approximations. In this study, two different approaches(More)
