Abstract

Scanning tunnelling microscope images of atomically flat terraces on a pyrite 100 surface are interpreted in terms of pyrite surface electronic structure. The structure observed at a step differs from that of the terrace. The images suggest that steps may provide paths of enhanced conductivity, which could affect pyrite surface redox reactivity.
