Nanoscale surface patterning by adsorbate-induced faceting and selective growth: NaCl on Cu(211)

Fölsch, Stefan ; Helms, Andreas ; Riemann, Andreas ; Repp, Jascha ; Meyer, Gerhard ; Rieder, Karl-Heinz


We present a combined high-resolution electron diffraction (SPALEED) and scanning tunneling microscopy study of the insulator/metal growth system NaCl/Cu(2 1 1) which is inherently unstable against lateral pattern formation on the nanometer scale. Cu(2 1 1) is a vicinal surface with (1 1 1) terraces and intrinsic (1 0 0) steps (step distance 6.25 Å). This starting surface restructures upon NaCl ...
