The role of electronic correlation in the Si ( 100 ) reconstruction : a quantum Monte Carlo study


Recent low-temperature scanning tunneling experiments have challenged the generally accepted picture of buckled silicon dimers as the ground state reconstruction of the Si(100) surface. Together with the symmetric dimer model of the surface suggested by quantum chemistry calculations on small clusters, these findings question our general understanding of… (More)
