Thin lithium layers on oxygenated C(100) boron-doped diamond have been observed using x-ray photoemission spectroscopy. Conductive boron-doped diamond was oxygen-terminated using an ozone cleaner. Lithium was evaporated onto the oxygen-terminated C(100) surface and an as-grown hydrogen terminated surface to a thickness of approximately 50 nm. After washing with deionised water, significant lithium signal is still detected on oxygenated diamond, but not on hydrogenated diamond, indicating a strongly bound lithium-oxygen surface layer is formed, as predicted by recent theoretical modeling.
