Findings in physics reported from N.V. Petrova and co-researchers
February 4th, 2008
"Structures of oxygen layers on the Mo(110) surface and desorption kinetics have been investigated by means of density-functional theory and generalized gradient approximation calculations and Monte Carlo simulations. It has been found that triply coordinated hollow sites are favorable for oxygen adatoms," scientists writing in the journal Physical Review B report.
"All energies of lateral interactions, used in the Monte Carlo simulations of the formation of oxygen structures, are found to be positive, which means that neither trio interactions nor explicit attraction between oxygen adatoms is needed to explain the formation of the p(2x1) oxygen structure. Simulated...
