Hydrogen adsorption on Al(100)
1988 (English)In: Physical Review B Condensed Matter, ISSN 0163-1829, E-ISSN 1095-3795, Vol. 37, no 11, p. 6164-6174Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Adsorption studies of hydrogen and deuterium on the clean (100) surface of aluminum are reported. The probability for H2 (D2) dissociation and subsequent metal-hydrogen bond formation is less than 1:104. This prompted the use of a beam of atomic hydrogen (deuterium). We have adsorbed between 0.01 and 1.0 monolayer and studied annealing sequences between 80 and 750 K with electron-energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS) and thermal-desorption spectroscopy (TDS). At <90 K we observe surface hydrogen coordinated in bridge positions, characterized by an Al-H (-D) vibrational band at 1125 (800) cm-1. Annealing to 150 K causes dominant features to appear at 1750 (1250) and 750 (550) cm-1. These losses are interpreted as the stretching and bending and/or scissoring modes of a terminally coordinated species. Further annealing to 280 K sees the growth of an intense band at 1825 (1325) cm-1, with no correlated low-frequency band. This last annealing signals the formation of another terminally coordinated species, tentatively assigned as ‘‘p(1×1) islands.'' Hydrogen recombination and molecular desorption is observed between 340 and 360 K. We have no indication of any scattering resonance in the elastic energy range 1-9 eV, nor do the angular profiles of the above losses deviate from the profile of the elastic peak. All vibrational modes are thus concluded to be dominated by dipole excitations.
