Abstract

Using an unusual arrangement of optical techniques, we studied the full azimuthal dependence of hydrogen diffusion on a 0.1°-miscut Ni(111) surface vs temperature. From such a dependence, we arrived at the conclusion that the extra energy barrier for a hydrogen adatom to cross a [110] step edge must be less than 60 meV or 1.5 kcal/mol.
