Gold-Silicon Interface : Electron Energy Loss and Auger Spectroscopies Versus Gold Coverage
1 monolayer, 20 monolayers and 100 monolayers of gold have been deposited on Si(111)2×1. Electronic properties of such a system have been studied by Energy Loss Spectroscopy and Auger Spectroscopy versus annealing temperature. At moderate annealing temperature Si migrates through the film. Higher annealing temperature results in gold islands formation : the electronic structure of discovered surface layer seems to be quite independent from gold film thickness.
