Scanning tunneling microscopy of ethylated Si(111) surfaces prepared by a chlorination/alkylation process.

Abstract

Scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and computational modeling have been used to study the structure of ethyl-terminated Si(111) surfaces. The ethyl-terminated surface was prepared by treating the H-terminated Si(111) surface with PCl5 to form a Cl-terminated Si(111) surface with subsequent exposure to C(2)H(5)MgCl in tetrahydrofuran to produce an alkylated… (More)
