On-surface covalent self-assembly of organic molecules is a very promising bottom-up approach for producing atomically controlled nanostructures. Due to their highly tuneable properties, these structures may be used as building blocks in electronic carbon-based molecular devices. Following this idea, here we report on the electronic structure of an ordered(More)
The non-centro-symmetric semiconductor BiTeI exhibits two distinct surface terminations that support spin-split Rashba surface states. Their ambipolarity can be exploited for creating spin-polarized p-n junctions at the boundaries between domains with different surface terminations. We use scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and spectroscopy (STS) to locate(More)
The compressed, incommensurate approximately (9.5 x 9.5) moire superstructure of the Ag monolayer on Cu(111) displays a filled surface state band with a Fermi energy gap at the Brillouin zone boundary. By contrast, the surface band is gapless for the less compressed, commensurate (9 x 9) moire of two Ag layers. A simple estimate of the energy gain rendered(More)
We report on new low-energy electron diffraction, scanning tunneling microscopy, and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy studies of alkali-metal/Si(111) previously established as having a Mott-insulating ground state at surface. The observation of a strong temperature dependent Franck-Condon broadening of the surface band together with the novel(More)
Dynamical phase transitions are a challenge to identify experimentally and describe theoretically. Here, we study a new reconstruction of Sn on silicon and observe a reversible transition where the surface unit cell divides its area by a factor of 4 at 250 °C. This phase transition is explained by the 24-fold degeneracy of the ground state and a novel(More)
Ab initio density-functional theory calculations, photoemission spectroscopy (PES), scanning tunneling microscopy, and spectroscopy (STM, STS) have been used to solve the 2sqrt[3]×2sqrt[3]R30 surface reconstruction observed previously by LEED on 0.5 ML K/Si:B. A large K-induced vertical lattice relaxation occurring only for 3/4 of Si adatoms is shown to(More)

’ Song comments on our recent paper, stating “it is apparent that the conclusion drawn from the XPS measurements and analysis is questionable, and the discussion of the XPS section was not well addressed”. In this reply, we show that while some of Song's comments are pertinent to certain technical aspects of photoelectron spectroscopy, most of his(More)
Surface-confined polymerization via Ullmann coupling is a promising route to create one- and two-dimensional covalent π-conjugated structures, including the bottom-up growth of graphene nanoribbons. Understanding the mechanism of the Ullmann reaction is necessary to provide a platform for rationally controlling the formation of these materials. We use fast(More)
