Determination of the c(2 × 2) structure of sulfur on Fe{001} by low-energy electron diffraction

Abstract

In the early stages of reaction with sulfur, a clean Fe{001} surface develops a c(2 × 2) superstructure. A low-energy electron diffraction analysis of this structure leads to a model in which the S atoms lie in the four-fold symmetrical sites on the Fe{001} surface, the S-Fe interplanar spacing being 1.09 ± 0.05 A ̊ and corresponding to an effective radius of 1.06 Å for the chemisorbed S atoms. In contrast to Fe{001} 1 × 1-O, the first interlayer spacing of the substrate here is not significantly expanded. © 1977.
