UNSPECIFIED (1997) Missing rows on oxygen-covered Cu(100) vicinal surfaces: A scanning tunnelling microscopy investigation. JOURNAL OF PHYSICS-CONDENSED MATTER, 9 (1). pp. 21-31. ISSN 0953-8984Full text not available from this repository.
Scanning tunnelling microscopy images of oxygen-covered Cu(410) facets, of the Cu(100)(root 2x2 root 2)R45 degrees-O structure, and of the faceting of Cu(610) in the presence of adsorbed oxygen have been used to investigate the basic elements of the atomic-scale structure of these surfaces. The existence of stable (100) nanofacets of widths corresponding to those of(4n 1 0) (n = 2, 3,...) faces is shown to be consistent with a common structural model for all of these surfaces based on the well known structural unit of three adjacent  Cu atom rows and one missing row which comprises the Cu(100)(root 2x2 root 2)R45 degrees-O surface. This model implies that on the (410) surface the missing row lies at the bottom of each atomic step on this surface. All these structures have a common local geometry for the adsorbed O atoms coordinated to four Cu atoms.
