In this chapter the experimental results on adsorption of chloride, bromide and iodide on Ag(110) surface is described.

UHV-based AES, XPS, LEED, and thermal desorption spectroscopy (TDS) measurements are described in [1, 4]. Only one TDS peak is found for all three halides and shows very similar adsorption/desorption characteristics. LEED reveals a p(2 × 1) → c(4 × 2) phase transition. While the most stable adsorption sites of chlorine on Ag(100) and Ag(111) are the hollow sites, the most stable site of all three halides on Ag(110) is the short-bridge site as concluded from DFT calculations [1, 2, 3, 4, 5].
