Abstract

Self-assembled gadolinium silicide (GdSi2) nanostructures grown on Si(001) were studied by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). Cross-sectional TEM and plan-view TEM moiré fringe pattern analyses show that the GdSi2 nanostructures can be divided into two classes: elongated nanowires with hexagonal crystal structure and rectangular islands with orthorhombic or tetragonal crystal structure.
