Novel Structure Model for the Type C Defect on Si(001) Surface

Conference paper
Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 121)


A novel structure model for the type C defect on Si(001) is proposed. The model is based on the assumption that the type C defect is originated from a removal of only one atom in the second layer and not a removal of two atoms on the surface. Optimized structure obtained from the first principles calculation reproduces STM images both at negative and positive sample biases.
