We present the first in-situ spot profile analysis low energy electron diffraction (SPA-LEED) study of the MBE growth of sub-monolayer coverages (0 to 1 ML) of Si on GaAs(001). Changes in the surface reconstructions from c(4 × 4) via mixed c(4 × 4)/(1 × 2), (1 × 2)/(2 × 1), (1 × 2)/asymmetric (3 × 1) and asymmetric (3 × 1) to a (3 × 1) increasing Si coverage have been monitored. Results are subsequently compared with recent in-situ reflection high energy electron diffraction (RHEED) and scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM) measurements. The continuous splitting between the View the MathML source diffraction spots up to the completion of the symmetric (3 × 1) reconstruction has been examin detail. Domain sizes for each reconstruction have been quantified from the spot profiles.
