Actively controlled oxidation of Cu{001} with hyperthermal O$$_{2}$$ molecular beam

The oxidation of Cu(001) with hyperthermal O$$_{2}$$ molecular beams was investigated using X-ray photoemission spectroscopy in conjunction with a synchrotron light source. The efficiency of oxidation is higher than that with ambient thermal O$$_{2}$$. Further oxidation under oxygen coverage larger than 0.5 ML occurs rather inefficiently even for the 2.3 eV beam irradiation. We found such slow oxidation of Cu corresponding to the initial stage of the Cu$$_{2}$$O formation can be interpreted in terms of a collision-induced-adsorption mechanism. The kinetics of the dissociative adsorption is well described using the first order kinetics in a simple Langmuir-type adsorption model.
