Oxygen-deficient line defects in an ultrathin aluminum oxide film

Oxygen-deficient line defects in an ultrathin aluminum oxide film

Physical Review Letters 97(4): 046101

A model for the straight antiphase domain boundary of the ultrathin aluminum oxide film on the NiAl(110) substrate is derived from scanning tunneling microscopy measurements and density-functional theory calculations. Although the local bonding environment of the perfect film is maintained, the structure is oxygen deficient and possesses a favorable adsorption site. The domain boundary exhibits a downwards band bending and three characteristic unoccupied electronic states, in excellent agreement with scanning tunneling spectroscopy measurements.
