|Title:||Homoepitaxial Growth of Iron and a Real Space View of Reflection-High-Energy-Electron Diffraction|
|Published:||January 01, 1993|
|Abstract:||We report real space views of the homoepitaxial growth of Fe on Fe(001) whiskers observed by scanning tunneling microscopy. A measure of the surface diffusion of the Fe atoms is obtained over the temperature range of 20-250° C. The effect of the diffusion kinetics is observed in the surface morphology as a decrease in the interface width with temperature. Measurements of reflection-high-energy-electron diffraction during growth allow a comparison of real and reciprocal space techniques.|
