Paper Title:
Nano-Size Surface Materials Stabilized by Weak Interaction
  Abstract

Scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) proved the existence of quasi-compounds on solid surfaces. A typical example is (-Ag-O-) or (-Cu-O-) chains grown on Ag(110) or Cu(110) surface by exposing to O2. The (-Ag-O-) chains on a Ag(110) reacts with Cu atoms to form a new quasi-compound of (-Cu-O-) chains on the Ag(110) surface. The (-Cu-O-) on the Ag(110) readily decomposes at ca. 570ºK to form Cu6 dots, and a reversible reaction of (Cu2)3 + O2. ↔ (-Cu-O-) takes place by exposing to O2. Deposited Zn, Sn and Ag atoms on a Si(111)-7x7 surface stabilize by forming Zn3, Sn2 and Sn, and Ag in a half unit cell. Layer-by-layer growth of Zn3 clusters occurs in a half unit cell, which results in the growth of a semi-conductive honeycomb layer of Zn3 clusters on the Si(111)-7x7 surface. By prohibiting hopping migration of Ag atoms on the Si(111)-7x7 surface by the adsorption of C2H5OH, nano-size Ag dots grow layer-by-layer in a limited mold spacing. The band gap of Ag-dots becomes narrower and narrower and becomes metallic at higher than 6 layers.
