Abstract

X-ray photoelectron diffraction patterns of Sb 3d core levels have been measured for the Si(111) 3× 3-Sb surface. The diffraction patterns are anazed kinematically using a spherical- and a plane-wave formalism. It has turned out that a trimer of Sb atoms is present on every 3× 3 site above the substrate. A "milk-stool" type of structure is tentatively inferred for a structural unit of the Si 3× 3-Sb surface.
