Cluster size effects on sintering, CO adsorption, and implantation in Ir/SiO(2).


A series of planar model catalysts have been prepared via deposition of Ir(n) (+) on thermally grown amorphous SiO(2)/Si(100) and ion scattering spectroscopy was used to probe surface structure as a function of cluster size, impact energy, and surface temperature. Deposition of Ir(2) or Ir(10) at low energies and room temperature results in stable clusters… (More)
