Self-assembly via adsorbate-driven dislocation reactions.

Abstract

Deposition of S onto a monolayer of Ag/Ru(0001) transforms the herringbone pattern of the clean Ag film into a strikingly regular array of 2D-vacancy islands [Nature (London) 397, 238 (1999)]]. Time-resolved scanning tunneling microscopy reveals that this nanometer-scale restructuring occurs by a cooperative mechanism involving the sequential formation of… (More)
