Abstract

Hexagonal boron nitride was grown on nickel (110) by chemical vapor deposition of borazine. The h-BN layers on Ni(110) were investigated by low energy electron diffraction (LEED) and angular resolved photoemission (ARUPS). LEED shows a (1 × 6) and a (7 × 5) super structure. ARUPS from the σ bands of h-BN indicates single layer h-BN, but two different orientations of the h-BN Brillouin zones with a relative weight of 6:1. This is in line with lock in energy arguments, which consider coincidence lattices between nickel top atoms and nitrogen atoms. [DOI:10.1380/ejssnt.2006.410]
