Abstract

By impact-collision ion-scattering spectroscopy it is demonstrated that the growth of the (2x1)O reconstruction on Cu(110) proceeds via added Cu-O rows in the [001] direction on top of flat terraces. The observed small creation energy for copper adatoms provides a solution of the mass-transport problem in surface reconstruction. The Cu-O rows are formed by a condensation of adsorbed oxygen atoms and copper adatoms diffusing across the surface.
