Title: Epitaxial Growth of MgO(001) on Lattice-Matched CrxMo1-x(001)

Abstract

We describe the MBE growth and structural characterization of ultrathin layers of epitaxial MgO on CrxMo1-x (x=o.6.5). The metal alloy was grown as an epitaxial film on high-quaility MgO(001) substrates. This kind of epitaxy produces unstrained MgO surfaces of very high structual quality on a caonducting substrate. Such materials will enable definitive investigations of surface structure and reactivity using charged-particle spectroscopy, diffraction, and imaging. The role of lattice matching is discussed and shown to be very important.
