The initial sticking probability of O$$_{2}$$ molecule on a Ti(0001)-1$$times$$1 surface at room temperature was measured as a function of translational kinetic energy by real-time photoelectron spectroscopy. The O 1s photoelectron spectra can be fitted well with three components A, B, and C, where the chemical shift of component B and C are +0.7 and +1.6 eV relative to the binding energy of component A (528.8 eV). Upon exposing to the O$$_{2}$$ beam, component A and C appear dominantly and component B grows with an incubation time, indicating that two kinds of chemical adsorption states are concerned with dissociative adsorption of O$$_{2}$$ molecule at the initial stage. The incident energy dependence of initial sticking probability shows quite different behaviours between component A and C: initial sticking probability of component C decreases monotonously with incident energy and is almost constant above 0.6 eV, while initial sticking probability of component A shows a rapid decrease followed by a gradual increase with a minimum at 0.5 eV and then decreases with two small maxima at 0.9 and 1.8 eV. The observed incident energy dependence of initial sticking probability for component A and C are discussed in terms of a trapping-mediated dissociative adsorption and a direct dissociative adsorption process.
