Conductivity of the metallic dangling-bond state of adatoms on Si(111)7x7 clean surface was determined through passivation of the only electrical channel by similar to 0.1 monolayer Na adsorption. Through systematic measurements of electron transport and photoemission spectroscopy during the Na deposition, Si(111)7x7 was found to exhibit a metal-to-insulator transition. The decrease in conductivity through the transition, which is attributed to the conductivity of the dangling-bond state, was 2…

Study of Sodium Adsorption on Pb/Si(111) Surfaces
The new reconstructions formed by sodium adsorption on Pb-terminated Si (111) surface were obtained: 2x2+2sqrt3x2sqrt3, 4x1, 3x3 and others. These surface structures have been observed by low-energy
Insulating conduction in Sn/Si(111): Possibility of a Mott insulating ground state and metallization/localization induced by carrier doping
The transport properties of the Si11133-Sn surface are investigated by micro-four-point-probe conductivity measurements. The temperature dependence of the surface-state conductivity showed an
Anisotropic conductivity of the Si(111)4×1-In surface: Transport mechanism determined by the temperature dependence
The temperature dependence of anisotropic conductivity of a quasi-one-dimensional metallic surface, Si(111)4× 1-In, was measured by a variable-temperature four-tip scanning tunneling microscope.
Quantum size effects in Mg epilayers on Si(111): Enhancement of photoelectron yield and oxidation rate
The subject of this thesis are non-adiabatic e ects during the oxidation of di erent magnesium and silicon surfaces. In the chemicurrent setup different Schottky diodes served as high-pass filters to
Low-temperature insulating phase of the Si(111)–7×7 surface
We investigated the electronic structure of the $\mathrm{Si}(111)--7\ifmmode\times\else\texttimes\fi{}7$ surface below 20 K by scanning tunneling and photoemission spectroscopies and by density
Electrical conductivity of reconstructed Si(111) surface with sodium-doped C60 layers
Electrical conductance of sodium-doped C60 ultra-thin layers (1–6 monolayers) grown on the Na-adsorbed Si(111)√3 × √3-Au surface has been studied in situ by four-point probe technique, combined with
Ni-based nanoalloys: towards thermally stable highly magnetic materials.
It is shown that, unlike the case of Ni-Al clusters, Ni-Ag clusters preserve high spin states due to small hybridization between the electronic levels of two species, and the possibility of creating ordered arrays of such magnetic clusters on a suitable support by soft-landing pre-formed clusters on the surface.
Stability of electric characteristics of Au films on Si(111)5.55 × 5.55-Cu surface exposed to oxygen
Dependence of the surface electric conductivity of the layered Au/Si(111)5.55 × 5.55-Cu structure on the thickness of Au film and exposure in oxygen has been studied using low-energy electron
Electrical transport through a scanning tunnelling microscope tip and a heavily doped Si contact
By allowing the metallic tip of a scanning tunnelling microscope to penetrate a Si(111) sample at 5 K, we found that the electrical transport through the tip and the heavily doped Si(111) contact
Non-local atomic manipulation on semiconductor surfaces in the STM: the case of chlorobenzene on Si(111)-7×7.
The demonstration that the non-local process is largely insensitive to surface steps up to five layers in height suggests that either the electron transport in this process is subsurface in character or surface charge transport is responsible but is in some way unaffected by the steps.
