Critical Ag coverage of the Si(111) √3 × √3-Ag surface has been examined by µ181;-probe Auger electron spectroscopy and found to be one monolayer, consistent with results of other conventional surface spectroscopies. Analyses of previously reported X-ray photoelectron diffraction patterns have indicated that symmetric 1-monolayer models, including a recent honeycomb chained triangle model (Jpn. J. Appl. Phys. 27 (1988) L753) and its derivatives, are unlikely. An asymmetric 1-monolayer model is presented from the analysis of X-ray photoelectron diffraction and is to be tested by other methods.
