Experimental and theoretical results are presented for Cu on an Ni(111) surface. The monolayer case is discussed in detail in connection with theoretical results of a tight-binding calculation. The theory accounts for the Cu 3d-peak position and the modification of the substrate density of states. Also, the measured Cu 3d line shape can be understood on the basis of the theory.
