Abstract

A theoretical formalism for calculating the mean surface phonon dispersion curves for surface alloy systems (AcB1 - c)1/B(klm) is developed, using the matching method and an effective field approach. Numerical results which are presented for the (100), (110), and (111) surfaces of the (PtcCu1 - c)1/Cu(klm) system are, however, carried out within t virtual crystal approximation which is described by random distributions of Pt atoms. In this approximation short range disorder effects are not predicted. Significant shifts of surface dispersion branches are found, as functions of the defect concentration c (0 ≤ c ≤ 1), that would be measurable within instrumental resolution of EELS and HAS. Thus, the fit of the calculated branches to the experimental data, in particular for small wavevectors, would lead to information concerning the values of the defect crystal interaction parameters.
