  • It is shown that a commensurate 1 x 1 monolayer of Pd on a Nb(110) surface undergoes a first-order structural phase transition to an incommensurate monolayer Pd(111) structure when roughly-equal18% more Pd atoms are added to the surface. We find, however, that this phase transition has no substantial effect on the surface electronic structure. A steady shift toward the Fermi level of the local density of states at the surface is found as the Pd coverage is increased beyond about one monolayer. This shift correlates quite well with a previously observed increase in the hydrogen uptake rate.
  • The electronic structure of the interface between cobalt phthalocyanine (CoPc) and epitaxially grown manganese oxide (MnO) thin films is studied by means of photoemission (PES) and X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS). Our results reveal a flat-lying adsorption geometry of the molecules on the oxide surface which allows a maximal interaction between the π-system and the substrate. A charge transfer from MnO, in particular, to the central metal atom of CoPc is observed by both PES and XAS. The change of the shape of N-K XAS spectra at the interface points, however, to the involvement of the Pc macrocycle in the chargemore » transfer process. As a consequence of the charge transfer, energetic shifts of MnO related core levels were observed, which are discussed in terms of a Fermi level shift in the semiconducting MnO films due to interface charge redistribution.« less
  • The electronic properties of co-evaporated mixtures (blends) of manganese phthalocyanine and the fullerene C{sub 60} (MnPc:C{sub 60}) have been studied as a function of the concentration of the two constituents using two supplementary electron spectroscopic methods, photoemission spectroscopy (PES) and electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS) in transmission. Our PES measurements provide a detailed picture of the electronic structure measured with different excitation energies as well as different mixing ratios between MnPc and C{sub 60}. Besides a relative energy shift, the occupied electronic states of the two materials remain essentially unchanged. The observed energy level alignment is different compared to that ofmore » the related CuPc:C{sub 60} bulk heterojunction. Moreover, the results from our EELS investigations show that, despite the rather small interface interaction, the MnPc related electronic excitation spectrum changes significantly by admixing C{sub 60} to MnPc thin films.« less
  • The electronic structure of sapphire, {alpha}-Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}, was calculated using the self-consistent-field discrete variational method in the local-density framework. Clusters of the size of 26--80 atoms embedded in the infinite host lattice were used to model the sapphire single crystal. A three-dimensional Ewald summation was used to obtain the Coulomb potential of the infinite lattice. Calculations were performed on ten clusters centered at four points of different point-group symmetries in bulk sapphire. The consistency of the calculated electronic structure among these ten clusters and good agreement with experimental data and recent first-principles band-structure calculations indicate that the bulk valuesmore » can be achieved with clusters of modest size. Features in the valence density of states are interpreted with the help of the bond densities between the O atom and its near neighbors. Bulk sapphire is found to be mostly ionic measured by about 2% orbital overlaps between nearest-neighbor Al and O atoms, with no charge accumulation in the bonding region.« less
