"H on Pt(110): An atypical chemisorption site at low coverages";
Physical Review B,
The use of hydrogen-modified Pt(110) as a template for the growth of one-dimensional adsorbate structures motivated our investigation of this surface with quantitative low-energy electron diffraction (LEED) and density functional theory (DFT) calculations. The analysis reveals a strong coupling of the H atom positions to Pt lattice relaxations on the (1_2) missing row surface. Contrary to all former assignments, we conclude from the experiment that at low coverages ( 2 state) H occupies adsorption sites above the outermost close-packed rows. This is supported by DFT calculations, which identify the short-bridge site on
