Abstract

We have carried out a back reflection X-ray standing wave (BRXSW) investigation of the geometric structure and degree of ordering of the system Rb Cu(111) as a function of Rb coverage. We observe no change in the Rb-Cu(111) perpendicular spacing as a function of coverage from saturation coverage of θ = 1 4 down to a coverage of θ = 1 16. We find a high degree of ordering of the Rb atoms perpendicular to the surface at all coverages, but a very low degree of order parallel to the Cu(111) surface. No differences in our results were detected for measurements at room temperature versus at ∼ 190 K. © 1995.
