Surface-charge-density relaxation of Ni(113)

Abstract

Symmetric in-plane and extremely asymmetric out-of-plane Ne-diffraction rainbows obtained from Ni(113) along [332»] show that the close-packed (111) facets are more strongly corrugated than the more open (100) ones, in surprising contrast to expectation. Surface-charge-density calculations with overlapping atomic densities indicate that surface bonding causes appreciable electronic charge flow from the (111) to the (100) facets, filling up the fourfold hollows completely. © 1985 The American Physical Society.
