We have prepared rutile TiO2(110) surfaces that are atomically flat over large areas as shown by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). We have obtained atomic resolution images of TiO2(110) where the (1×1) structure is found to cover all of the observed areas on the sample. In some cases, we also observe an elongated defect structure oriented along the [001] direction. We discuss geometric and electronic properties of models for the clean and defective surfaces which can be used to explain the observed STM images.
