Surface properties of alkaline metals in the electric field in view of relaxation
North Caucasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (State Technological University)
Abstract: Influence of the surface relaxation on the surface energy of low-index faces of alkaline metals is considered. It is shown, that compression of interplane distances is observed on friable faces (111) in all cases, and either a stretching or absence of relaxation is observed on close-packed faces (110) for Li and K. Presence of a field strengthens the surface relaxation and changes the value of the surface energy.
Keywords: surface energy, relaxation, electronic work function.
