(Color online) Si peak evolution after various treatments. After the Se deposition, the increase in the shoulder intensity at the higher binding energies relative to the Si bulk corresponds to the formation of Si–Se bonds. After the first oxidation, all the Si suboxides are observed, including the oxidation state corresponding to the formation of
