Abstract
We compare photoelectron spectra (PES) and theoretical densities-of-states of C-60/Al(111), C-60/Al(110) and C-60/Al(100). The splitting observed on all three surfaces is attributed to final state charging. This splitting can also be used to improve estimates of the charging energy U of adsorbed molecules and as a criterion for the existence of strong covalent bonding to the electrode. Au exhibits weak bonding in available data, whereas Ag(100), with measurable charge transfer, appears qualitatively similar to Al. (C) 2009 Elsevier B. V. All rights reserved.
