Abstract

Abstract This paper is divided into two parts. Firstly, a review of desorption methods is presented, with emphasis on the use of temperature programmed desorption (TPD) and electron stimulated desorption (ESD) for understanding the bonding of adsorbed species to surfaces. Secondly, recent studies of the angular distribution of ESD ions from adsorbed layers on W(011) are discussed. The ESD of O + ions from oxygen adsorbed on a stepped W(011) surface is shown to be sensitive to the presence of atom steps.
