Abstract

The ytterbium intercalation under a graphite monolayer formed on the Ni(111) surface has been studied by Auger electron and angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy. The features of the electronic structure of the intercalate-like thin-film compound formed in this process are analyzed. It is shown that the energy shift of the π and σ states in the valence band toward higher binding energies (by ∼2 and ∼1 eV, respectively) can be described in terms of hybridization of the carbon π states in the graphite monolayer with the d states of the underlying metal.
