An STM study of the UO2(001) surface

Abstract:

The UO2(001) surface has been studied by elevated-temperature scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM) and low-energy electron diffraction (LEED). The first reported STM images taken of the UO2(001) surface reveal a maze-like structure which can be resolved atomically at negative sample bias. The observed atomic periodicity corresponds to half a monolayer of oxygen arranged in slightly relaxed (1 x 1) out-of-phase domains along the [110] and [(1) over bar 10] directions. The shape and arrangement...
