Abstract: Synchrotron surface X-ray diffraction has been used to investigate in situ the morphology and epitaxy of monolayer amounts of copper electrodeposited from aqueous electrolyte onto ultra-high vacuum prepared, smooth, Ga- or As-terminated GaAs(0 0 1) surfaces. The fcc lattice of the epitaxial Cu islands is rotated by ?5° and tilted by about ?9° with respect to the GaAs substrate lattice, leading to eight symmetry equivalent domains of Cu islands terminated by {1 1 1} facets.
