We have studied the water production on combination with work function measurements, tive measurements on a Pd-SiO,-Si structure. pressure ratio is confirmed. Above the critical increasing oxygen pressure and increases with ratio, the water production rate is proportional hydrogen pressure. These features, together with are described by a simple Langmuir-Hinshelwood lateral mobility and that both hydrogen and adsorbed oxygen.

Below the critical to the oxygen pressure and independent of the the variations in oxygen and hydrogen coverage, model, assuming that hydrogen has a large oxygen adsorption-dissociation is blocked by

The adsorption of atomic hydrogen on group lb elements has been studied, by means of pseudopotential calculations, for copper and silver clusters with up to six atoms, Various adsorption positions and spin multiplicities have been considered, and corresponding equilibrium internuclear distances, binding energies and force constants have been calculated.

The resonant enhancement in photoelectron spectra at the 4d edges of rare earth atoms and metals is also found in yield spectra of desorbed ions from the surfaces of the oxides of Sm. Eu and Yb following the photon excttation. The analysis of the 4d --t 4f resonance leads lo a picture of an Indirect mechanism of ion desorption which is mamly caused by the flux of energetic 4f photoelectrons from the bulk. In this case the dominant desorption through secondary processes hmits the use of the photon-stimulated desorption (PSD) to determine 1n which type of atom the desorbing species was attached.

The atomic geometry of the (2 x 1) reconstructed Si(l11) surface has been determlned with ion shadowing and blocking. The reconstruction involves large displacements parallel to the surface. Comparison of the experimental results with computer simulations for various reconstructton models excludes the buckling and the n-bonded molecule models, and shows consistency with the n-bonded chain model only. A structure search around the r-bonded chain model shows an optimal fit between experiment and simulations when the model includes a tilt of the upper and lower chains with respect to the surface plane. A detailed account of experimental and computational techniques is giver
