Moiré beatings in graphene on Ru(0001)


Iannuzzi, Marcella; Kalichava, Irakli; Ma, Haifeng; Leake, Steven J; Zhou, Haitao; Li, Geng; Zhang, Yi; Bunk, Oliver; Gao, Hongjun; Hutter, Jürg; Willmott, Philip R; Greber, Thomas (2013). Moiré beatings in graphene on Ru(0001). Physical Review B, 88(12):125433.

Abstract

The moiré superstructure of a single layer of carbon on ruthenium, where 25×25 graphene honeycombs sit on 23×23 substrate unit cells, is determined from first principles. The density functional theory (DFT) calculations predict two kinds of structural units, Ω and Y, in the supercell, which are identified as moiré beatings or moirons. The related topographic bucklings, or "hills," have distinct carbon conformations and a height of 1.16 Å. The different moirons are observed with scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), and surface x-ray diffraction (SXRD) also discriminates the two. This connects ab initio DFT calculations with STM and SXRD experiments in unit cells containing more than 4000 atoms.
