Abstract [en]

The 6×6 and v39×v39 phases of Ag/Ge(1 1 1) have been studied by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). Surface atomic structures of the 6×6 and the v39×v39 phase are proposed in terms of additional Ag adatoms on top of a v3×v3 layer described by the honeycomb-chain-trimer (HCT) model. By varying the STM tip bias, the reconstruction can be changed reversibly between the v39×v39 and the 6×6 phase. Besides the switching between two different phases, it is also possible to flip the domain orientation of the v39×v39 phase. The mechanisms of the reconstruction transformation have been discussed in terms of the role of the STM tip. © 2003 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
