Abstract

First-principles inelastic electron tunneling spectroscopy simulations give distinct signals for different phases of a water bilayer on a Pd (111) surface. Based on our recent electrochemical modeling of the water-Pd interface, we report on elastic and inelastic scanning tunneling microscopy simulations on two ice phases. Both phases exhibit only two tunneling-active optical phonons: the one corresponding to a stretching mode at higher frequency and the rocking/wagging one at lower frequency. However, the inelastic efficiencies at the phonon thresholds are very different between phases, enabling the discrimination of ice phases on metal surfaces.
