Abstract

Results are reported using UHV electron microscopy to determine the role of background gases in influencing surface damage experiments and on the gold (001) surface prepared by ion-beam cleaning/thinning and annealing. In maximum valence oxides the end product is a higher-symmetry oxide or metal in UHV, but in a non-UHV environment secondary reactions take place. No evidence is found for electronic damage of non-maximal valence oxides, only sputtering and electron-stimulated reactions. For the gold (001) surface we have reproduced conventional surface-science preparations using ion-beam cleaning and annealing to produce the known reconstructed hexagonal monolayer on the surface.
