Abstract:The quantum-size effect (QSE) driven growth of Bi film structures on Ni(111) was studied in situ using low energy electron microscopy and selective area low energy electron diffraction (μLEED). Domains with a (3×3), [3/1 -1/2], and (7×7) film structure are found with a height of 3, 5, and 7 atomic layers, respectively. A comparison of I/V-μLEED curves with tensor LEED calculations shows perfectly accommodated Fermi wavelengths, indicative that not only the quantized height, but also the film structure is driven by QSE.
