The scattering potential of the defects on Ge(001) surfaces is investigated by first-principles methods. The standing wave in the spatial map of the local density of states obtained by wave-function matching is compared to the image of the differential conductance measured by scanning tunneling spectroscopy. The period of the standing wave and its phase shift agree with those in the experiment. It is found that the scattering potential becomes a barrier when the electronegativity of the upper…
