Using photoelectron spectroscopy, the overlayer electronic structure was observed to he modulated by the Hg growth mode for Hg adsorbed on W(110) at 200 K. The Hg layer-by-layer growth was also characterized by variations in the ratio between the Hg 5d shallow core level and W 4f photoemission intensities. This layer-by-layer growth occurs in spite of surprisingly weak electronic interactions between the adatoms and the substrate.
