We have determined the surface structure of O/Cu(104) using X-ray diffraction. This surface was prepared by dosing Cu(115) with oxygen, transforming the clean surface into facets with {104} and {113} orientations. This method of preparation, in essence, naturally grows the (104)-oriented substrate concurrent with the O-covered surface, resulting in O/Cu(104) facets which are smooth and highly ordered. Our results indicate that the top three atomic rows significantly expand away from the bulk… CONTINUE READING
