31. Determination of the Spin-Polarized Surface Density of States In Strongly Correlated Metals By Field Emission: Theory
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 4/15/1975
Author: David R. Penn
Abstract: It is shown that the combination of spin-polarization and field-emission energy distribution measurements on ferromagnetic transition metals will provide direct information about the one-dimensional surface density of states in a direction normal to ...

32. Direct Verification of Hydrogen Termination of the Semiconducting Diamond (111) Surface
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 7/1/1982
Authors: B Waclawski, Daniel Thornton Pierce, Nils Swanson, Robert Celotta
Abstract: Low-energy, high-resolution electron energy loss spectroscopy has been used to identify the vibrational modes of hydrogen on the semiconducting diamond surface providing the first direct evidence that the (111) 1X1 surface is terminated by hydrogen. ...

33. Effect of Surface Modes on Photon Propagation through Dielectric Bandgaps
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 10/28/2009
Authors: Natalia Malkova, Sergey V Polyakov, Alan L Migdall, Garnett W Bryant
Abstract: We investigate the Hartman saturation effect of photons traveling through barriers created by bandgaps of multilayer stacks. In particular, we investigate theoretically the recently observed jumps in photon transversal times due to adding a single l ...

34. Effect of elastic deformation on frictional properties of few-layer graphene
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 1/9/2012
Authors: Alexander Y Smolyanitsky, Jason Philip Killgore, Vinod K Tewary
Abstract: We describe the results of Brownian dynamics (BD) simulations of an AFM tip scanned on locally suspended few-layer graphene. The effects of surface compliance and sample relaxation are directly related to the observed friction force. We demonstrate t ...

35. Effects of Elastic and Inelastic Electron-scattering on Quantitative Surface Analysis by A.E.S. and X.P.S
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 1/1/1994
Authors: Cedric John Powell, E Jablonski, Shigeo Tanuma, David R. Penn
Abstract: A review is given that describes the complications due to elastic and inelastic electron scattering in quantitative surface analyses by Auger-electron spectroscopy and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. Four principal topics are addressed. First, th ...

36. Effects of surface compliance and relaxation on the frictional properties of lamellar materials
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 6/10/2014
Authors: Alexander Y Smolyanitsky, Shuze Zhu, Zhao Z. Deng, Teng Li, Rachel J. Cannara

37. Electron Inelastic Mean Free Paths in Organic Materials Especially for Polyethylene and Guanine
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 1/1/1994
Authors: Shigeo Tanuma, Cedric John Powell, David R. Penn
Abstract: We have calculated the electron inelastic mean free paths (IMFPs) in the range 50-2000 eV for 14 different organic compounds using the Penn algorithm. We report here mainly the calculated values of IMFPs for polyethylene and guanine, because their d ...

38. Electron Inelastic Mean Free Paths in Solids at Low Energies
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 1/1/1990
Authors: Shigeo Tanuma, Cedric John Powell, David R. Penn
Abstract: We have calculated electron inelastic mean free paths (IMFPs) for 50-200 eV electrons in 31 materials (27 elements and 4 compounds). These calculations extend those previously reported for 200-2000 eV electrons in the same materials but avoid an a ...

39. Electron Mean-Free-Path Calculations Using a Model Dielectric Function
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 1/1/1987
Author: David R. Penn
Abstract: The inelastic electron mean free path as a function of energy is calculated for Cu, Ag, Au, and Al. The calculations are based on a model dielectric function {epsilon}(q,w), which is obtained from a modification of the statistical approximation. In ...

40. Electron Spectroscopy of Chemisorbed Atoms and Surface Molecules
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 3/1/1974
Author: John William Gadzuk
