Abstract

Metastable induced electron spectroscopy (MIES), ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy (UPS), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) were applied to study the interaction of Ti metal atoms with spruce surfaces. Spruce surfaces were produced by planing splints from a spruce bar. Ti atoms were adsorbed from a metal evaporator under ultra-high vacuum conditions. The amount adsorbed corresponds to 10 monolayer equivalents. Strong interactions between the spruce surface and metals atoms occurred. Impinging Ti atoms were oxidized by the spruce surface. No Ti agglomeration or particle formation was observed. The surface was smoothed by the Ti applied and was completely covered by a titanium oxide film.

Keywords: adsorption; metastable induced electron spectroscopy (MIES); photoelectron spectroscopy (UPS, XPS); spruce surfaces; titanium
