It have been reported that in deposition onto the Si(111)-() reconstruction under suitable conditions resulted in the formation of the ordered In nanocluster array structure. Such ordered array structures of metal nanoclusters are promising materials for an ultra-high density recording and nanocatalysis, etc. In the present report, we deposit Sb onto the In nanocluster array structure on the Si(111)-() reconstructed surface, and observe clusters containing In and Sb atoms by STM.
