ABSTRACT
The Eley–Rideal mechanism for the recombinative desorption of hydrogen is examined theoretically. A two-dimensional collinear model is used to describe the interaction between a gas phase atom and an atom bound to a metal surface, which combine to form a desorbing molecule. The model is solved exactly by a fully quantum pseudospectral technique. Reaction probabilities and final molecular vibrational distributions are computed as a function of the kinetic energy of the incident atom, for model Cu and W surfaces. Large amounts of vibrational excitation are found, due to the large exothermicity of the reaction. Isotope effects are examined by replacing the incoming and/or bound H atoms with D.

    The recombinative desorption of H2 from Ge(100)–(2×1) is studied by temperature programed desorption (TPD) and laser-induced desorption (LID). In contrast to what is observed for the Si(100)–(2×1) surface, the TPD spectra for Ge(100) do not appear to show appreciable...
