Electronic structure of an ordered Pb/Ag(111) surface alloy: Theory and experiment


Pacile, D; Ast, C R; Papagno, M; Da Silva, C; Moreschini, L; Falub, M; Seitsonen, A P; Grioni, M (2006). Electronic structure of an ordered Pb/Ag(111) surface alloy: Theory and experiment. Physical Review. B, Condensed Matter and Materials Physics, 73(24):245429.

Abstract

We have studied by angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy (ARPES) the band structure of the ordered surface alloy obtained by the deposition of 0.33 monolayers of Pb on the Ag(111) surface. We observe several dispersing features which are well described as Pb-Ag hybrid bands by a band structure calculation performed within the generalized gradient approximation of density functional theory. We also find that a band of mixed Pb p(z) and Ag s character is split in momentum space. We interpret this splitting as the combined result of spin-orbit interaction and broken inversion symmetry at the surface.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
