The structures induced by platinum (Pt) adsorption on Si(1 1 0) surface have been studied by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) for coverage up to 2 monolayers (ML). Three surface phases have been found to form: "5 × 4", "13 × 2" and "6 × 5 " for Pt coverages 0.3, 0.5 and 1 ML respectively. All structures are formed by one-dimensional rows aligned along the [1 over(1, ̄) 0] direction. At the coverage >1 ML islands of, probably, Pt silicide start to form in form of 1D nanowires.
