Abstract

Water adsorbed in submonolayer coverage on Ag(111) at 70 K forms hydrogen-bonded networks. High resolution images in combination with calculation reveal that single protrusions represent a cyclic water hexamer with the intermolecular bond stretched to the silver lattice constant of 0.29 nm. Scanning tunneling spectroscopy indicates that the bond length within the two-dimensional hydrogen-bonded water layer is shortened. The spectra contain further information about the vibrational modes of water molecules.
