Observation of a surface alloying-to-dealloying transition during growth of Bi on Ag(111)

Abstract:

The atomic structures that develop as a function of coverage during deposition of Bi on Ag(111) have been studied using low-temperature scanning tunneling microscopy, low-energy electron diffraction, and ab initio calculations. The growth process involves two sequential stages. At low coverage, Bi atoms are incorporated into the topmost layer of Ag(111), resulting in the formation of an Ag2Bi alloy confined to the surface and ordered (√3×√3)R30°Ag2Bi islands supported on Ag(111). This mode of...
