Atomic structure of the epitaxial BaO/Si(001) interface.


We present the structure of the interface responsible for epitaxy of crystalline oxides on silicon. Using synchrotron x-ray diffraction, we observe a 2 x 1 unit cell reconstruction at the interface of BaO grown on Si(001) terminated with 1/2 ML of Sr. Since this symmetry is not present in bulk BaO or Si, only the interface contributes to diffracted… (More)
