Paper Title:
First-Principles Study on Initial Oxidation of NiAl(110)
  Abstract

The oxygen atom adsorption at Al-Al bridge, Ni-Ni bridge, Al top and Ni top site on the NiAl(110) surface by first-principles method within density functional theory has been studied in this paper. It has been found that the preferred adsorption position of the oxygen was at the Al-Al bridge site then the Ni-Ni bridge site. The charge transfer took place obviously between the O atom and the nearest Al atoms, but no charge transferred from the nearest Ni atoms to O atom. For the Al-Al (Ni-Ni) bridge adsorption site, the bond lengths of Al-O and Ni-O were about 1.741 Å (1.700Å) and 2.369Å (2.012Å), respectively, which means that the Al atom is easier to be oxidized than the Ni atom. It is revealed that the Al atom oxidized selectively and the chemical bond formed between the O ion and the nearest Al ions during the initial oxidation stage.
