Abstract

We determined surface structures in a structural sequence c(2 × 2)→(4 × 4)→(5 × 5) formed on Ni(001) at 370 K with increasing Li coverage by a dynamical low-energy electron diffraction analysis. The (4 × 4) and (5 × 5) are complex surface-structures involving restructuring of substrate surface atoms, and are analogous to the previously determined (3 × 3) and (4 × 4) structures formed for Li/Cu(001). The c(2 × 2) at low coverages is a Li adlayer, so a change of the adsorption mode from adlayer-to restructuring-type is evidenced in the course of increasing coverage within a monolayer range.
