Abstract

Effects of the molecule-adsorption on a MgO surface on the growth of ultra-thin Fe films were investigated. Surface observation by reflection high-energy electron diffraction and ultra-high vacuum atomic force microscopy showed that the adsorption of molecules on the MgO surface affected the morphology of Fe films grown on the MgO surface. It was revealed that the surface flatness of Fe films was improved by appropriate molecule-adsorption on the MgO surface.
