(S)-Lysine adsorption induces the formation of gold nanofingers on Au{111}

Author affiliations

Abstract

STM imaging following the adsorption of (S)-lysine on Au{111} leads to the observation of Au nanofingers whose growth directions correlate with the unit cell vectors of ordered 2-D phases of lysine. The likely mechanism of surface restructuring is discussed.
