Photoelectron spectroscopy study of Ag/Si(111)root 3X root 3 and the effect of additional Ag adatoms
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
High-resolution core-level spectroscopy has been applied to the Ag/Si(111)root3xroot3 surface. The Si 2p line shape is found to depend critically on the presence of additional Ag adatoms on the surface. A significant broadening caused by the surplus of Ag atoms could be eliminated by careful annealing. The resulting Si 2p spectra are significantly sharper than any published data for this or other Si based surface systems. Two major surface components are identified for the root3xroot3 surface, which find a natural explanation in terms of the honeycomb-chained-trimer model. A small but characteristic contribution to the Si 2p spectrum of the Ag/root3xroot3 surface is tentatively assigned to defects.
