Abstract

After postannealed at 950 K, Au films deposited on MgO(001) substrates exhibit (22 × √3) reconstructed (111) surfaces. A scanning tunneling microscopy study reveals that a new structure in which one herringbone ridge connects with another exists on the Au(111) film surfaces. Furthermore, a 'steplike defect', which appears locally and exhibits a step height lower than a monatomic step, exists near the herringbone ridge connection. The origins of the connection of the herringbone ridge and the steplike defect and their interaction are discussed.
