(Color) STM images of (a) 0.13 ML, (b) 0.73 ML, and (c) 2.2 ML Co deposited on . These pictures reveal that cobalt prefers to nucleate nano-sized particles which are aligned by the template with high density and uniform size. Note that the Co particles are well-ordered as one-dimensional chain for all coverages.
(a), (b) Height and diameter distribution of 0.43 ML . The average height is , and the average diameter is , which are obtained from Gaussion fitting of the distribution. (c), (d) The average heights and diameters of Co nanoparticles with different coverage.
(Color) (a) LEED pattern of . The inset depicts the line profile across the superstructure. (b) STM image of 0.05 ML .
(Color) (a)–(c) STM images of 2.2 ML after annealing at 700, 750, and , respectively, for .
