Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, a database of surface energies for low index surfaces of 60 metals in the periodic table was used to establish a consistent starting point for models of surface science phenomena, and the accuracy of the database was established in a comparison with other density functional theory results and the calculated surface energy anisotropies were applied in a determination of the equilibrium shape of nano-crystals of Fe, Cu, Mo, Ta, Pt and Pb.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the authors present a consistent picture of some key physical properties determining the reactivity of metal and alloy surfaces, and suggest that trends in reactivities can be understood in terms of the hybridization energy between the bonding and anti-bonding adsorbate states and the metal d-bands (when present).

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, a method for finding free energy barriers for transitions in high-dimensional classical and quantum systems is presented and used to calculate the dissociative sticking probability of H 2 on a metal surface within the transition state theory.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, a semi-theoretical approach was proposed to estimate the surface energy of solids in the absence of direct experimental measurement. But this method was not suitable for the case of high-index surfaces.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, a scheme for fitting the Ni 2p spectra using multiplet envelopes is proposed, based on charge transfer assignments of the main peak at 854.6 eV and the broad satellite centred at around 861 eV to the cd 9 L and the unscreened cd 8 final state configurations, respectively.
