Abstract:

This paper is divided into two parts. Firstly, a review of desorption methods is presented, with emphasis on the use of temperature programmed desorption TPD and electron stimulated desorption ESD for understanding the bonding of adsorbed species to surfaces. Secondly, recent studies of the angular distribution of ESD ions from adsorbed layers on W011 are discussed. The ESD of O ions from oxygen adsorbed on a stepped W011 surface is shown to be sensitive to the presence of atom steps. Author
