SrTiO3 (001) (2x1) reconstructions: first-principles calculations of surface energy and atomic structure compared with scanning tunnelling microscopy images
s131d and s231d reconstructions of the (001) SrTiO3 surface were studied using the first-principles fullpotential linear muffin-tin orbital method. Surface energies were calculated as a function ofExpand
