    Our high-performance UHV-mode FI-STM/STS (field ion-scanning tunneling microscopy/spectroscopy) was used for the analysis of oxygen adsorption on the Ag(110) clean surface. When the surface was exposed to oxygen, one-dimensional linear chains with various separation widths were observed, corresponding to the (n × 1) LEED patterns. It was concluded that these linear chains consist of AgOAg components, similar to the case of the Cu(110)O system.
