Abstract: The binding and interaction of Cu on Si(1 1 1)-(7×7) at room temperature have been studied using scanning tunneling microscopy. Self-organized growth of ordered Cu nanostructures was observed. At low coverage, the two-dimensional Cu nanostructures are predominantly assembled at the faulted halves of the (7×7) unit cells. High coverage leads to Cu-binding on the unfauled halves. Our results also show that the two-dimensional nanostructure consists of six Cu-atoms with three on the center adatoms and the others on the rest atoms within one half of a unit cell. The Cu nanostructure formed may have potential applications in the fabrication of nanoscale devices and chemical modification of semiconductor surfaces. © 2003 Elsevier Science B.V.
