A new type of reconstruction on the InSb ( 111 ) surface determined by grazing incidence X-ray diffraction


The (3 X 3) reconstruction of the InSb(iii> surface has been investigated by grazing incidence X-ray diffraction and scanning tunneling microscopy. The structure is characterized by 6-atom rings on top of a slightly buckled InSb top double layer. Two types of rings have been found, an elliptic ring consisting of 4 In and 2 Sb atoms and a trigonal ring with… (More)
