Electronic response of a plasma-facing dielectric solid
Towards a microscopic understanding of the transfer of the plasma’s electronic non-equilibrium to a solid.
Reconciliation between atomic and electronic structure periodicity in Si(111)-7×7
For the first time, a 7×7 intensity modulation of electronic band structure has been observed in the 7×7–reconstructed Si(111) surface. Sheverdyaeva et al. give an account of their research published in Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter.
