The collective behavior of point defects formed on the free surfaces of ionic crystals under redox conditions can lead to initiation of local breakdown by pitting. Here, we controllably generated sulfur vacancies on single crystal FeS2(100) through in vacuo annealing, and investigated the resulting evolution of surface chemistry using synchrotron x-ray… CONTINUE READING
