Metal surfaces: Surface, step and kink formation energies
2000 (English)In: Physica status solidi. B, Basic research, ISSN 0370-1972, E-ISSN 1521-3951, Vol. 217, no 1, 405-418 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We review the surface, step, and kink energies in monoatomic metallic systems. A systematic comparison is given between the theoretical results based on density functional theory and available experimental data. Our calculated values are used to predict the equilibrium shapes of small metal particles, monoatomic surface islands, and the instability of different surface geometries.
