# One-dimensional oxide on stepped rhodium

Top: STM image showing the "normal" two-dimensional surface oxide on Rh(111) and the one-dimensional "wavy" oxide on the steps of a Rh(335) facet.
Bottom: calculated structure of the wavy one-dimensional oxide on Rh(335). Note the chains of Rh atoms surrounded by squares of four oxygen atoms.
