Title: Observations of Alloying in the Growth of Cr on Fe(001)
Published: January 01, 1997
Abstract: Using scanning tunneling microscopy, we observe the alloying of Cr with an Fe(001) substrate for various coverages at two temperatures. At low Cr coverage, the alloy consists of individual Cr impurities surrounded by Fe. Elemental identification is possible using surface states observed via tunneling spectroscopy. The alloy may be the cause of several magnetic anomalies observed in Cr/Fe structures.
