Band structure and oscillatory electron-phonon coupling of Pb thin films determined by atomic-layer-resolved quantum-well states.

Abstract

Using a low temperature growth method, we have prepared atomically flat Pb thin films over a wide range of film thickness on a Si-(111)-7 x 7 surface. The Pb film morphology and electronic structure are investigated in situ by scanning tunneling microscopy and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy. Well-defined and atomic-layer-resolved quantum-well… (More)
