Abstract

A two-dimensional ordered carbon monolayer has been deposited on oxygen covered Mo(100) at 1300 K from a 5% methane in hydrogen gas mixture passed over a tungsten filament at 2300 K. The carbon layer grows laterally by occupying surface sites freed by the removal of adsorbed oxygen. A well-defined growth front is observed with photoemission electron microscopy, as well as a transitional species localized at the carbon-oxygen growth boundary.
