Gold Particles Over Metal Oxide Surfaces

Caption: This is a visualization of an atomic structure of the studied system where a negatively charged (charge -1) gold adatom is adsorbed on molybdemun-doped calcium oxide. The molebdenum dopant has an oxidation state of +3. The adsorption energy consists of ionocovalent, redox and Coulombic contributions. Yellow: gold; green: molybdenum; blue: calcium; red: oxygen.
