Abstract: We have studied the higher-order Si(100)-c(8 × 8) surface reconstruction using scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and low-energy electron diffraction (LEED). Our high resolution STM images show that long range ordering of rectangular cells are the building blocks of this reconstruction. We identify Si-Si ad-dimers and determine that three pairs of ad-dimers constitute each rectangular cell. The ad-dimer direction is parallel to the longer side of these rectangular cells. We propose a new dimer model to explain this reconstruction. © 2008 IOP Publishing Ltd.
