Abstract

Abstract The growth mode, work function, thermal desorption and structure of Be films up to several layers in thickness on a W{110} surface are investigated. At room temperature layer-by-layer growth occurs, at least up to 3 layers. Thick films show a complex growth and annealing behavior. Within the first layer the bonding to the substrate is only slightly ionic, the bonding between the adatoms probably at least in part via indirect electronic interactions. Filling of the first layer proceeds by a sequence of discontinuous structural transformations combined with changes of the electronic properties of the deposit and of the adsorbate-substrate binding forces.
