Formation of Cu2O nanorods by oxidation of Cu(100) at ~ 600°C

Percolating oxide growth during oxidation of Cu(111) at ~ 450°C

Dendritic Cu2O growth during the oxidation of Cu-Au(100) at 600°C

Kinetic Monte Carlo simulations of the growth of surface craters during thermal reduction of Cu2O nanoislands on Cu(100). Upper panel: simulated images, lower panel: experimental AFM images

Density functional theory modeling: Oxygen subsurface adsorption at the boundary formed by parallel missing-row domains with half unit-cell mismatch (a) results in the formation of two corner-sharing Cu2O tetrahedrons with the Cu2O(111)//Cu(100) (b) and a Cu2O tetrahedron with Cu2O(100)//Cu(100) (c) (red balls: oxygen atoms; blue balls: Cu atoms).
