Abstract :
Formation processes of titanium silicide on hydrogen-terminated H/Si(0 0 1)-2 × 1 surface are studied at the atomic scale with a scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). Square-shaped nanoislands were observed on the Ti/H/Si(0 0 1) surface after annealed at 873–1073 K. These are the epitaxial nanoislands moderately grown due to the local orientation relationship between C49–TiSi2 and Si(0 0 1), because passivation by surface hydrogen on Si(0 0 1) suppresses active and complex bond formation of Ti–Si.
