Formation of an iodine zig-zag chain c(2 × 4) reconstruction on the Ge(111) surface


Room temperature adsorption of I2 on the Ge(111) surface is found to break the initial c(2 x 8) adatom reconstruction as iodine preferentially occupies the on top substrate site, breaks the backbonds between the adatom and the substrate and thus removes the Ge adatoms. As this process continues a c(2 x 4), and modifications thereof, reconstruction is formed consisting of chains of I2 molecules bound in almost T1 sites with a I-I bond length of 3.6 A
