Abstract:

The rotational anisotropy in the optical second harmonic response from flat and stepped Ag electrode surfaces biased in an electrolyte solution have been examined. Compared to the flat Ag111 surface, the stepped surfaces show a pronounced effect due to the lowering of the surface symmetry. The results are interpreted in terms of a pseudo mirror plane at these steps.... Stepped crystal electrode surfaces, Optical second harmonic generation.
