Structures of the `nanowire' and 2×n phase of the submonolayer system of Bi/Si(001) have been studied by X-ray photoelectron diffraction (XPD). The general features of Bi 4d XPD patterns show that Bi atoms exist only at the topmost layer for the two phases. Single-scattering cluster simulations were performed for several structural models, including those for the `nanowire' and for the 2×n phase, to find they are very feasible.
