|Title:||Probing The Surface Atomic Structure Of Au/cr2o3/pd(111) By Photoelectron Diffraction|
De Siervo A.
|Abstract:||A detailed investigation concerning the surface atomic structure of the Au/Cr2O3 model catalyst deposited on a Pd(111) single crystal surface is presented. The system was prepared by molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and characterized in situ by low-energy electron diffraction (LEED), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and X-ray photoelectron diffraction (XPD). The element-specific short-range order information was obtained from XPD experiments supported by a comprehensive multiple scattering calculation diffraction approach. Based on the experiments, we have strong evidence of Au island formation on the Cr2O3 surface. The experiments indicated that the islands are constructed of two Au monolayers and formed by the important structural relaxations in the three outermost atomic layers of the Au/Cr2O3 surface. Such a surface structure could explain the particular catalytic reactivity displayed by catalysts based on Au nanoparticles dispersed on several oxide matrices. This journal is|
