Abstract

Calculations are presented of the coefficient C3 of the z-3 dispersion interaction between Ir and Ta atoms and a W surface. The results depend sensitively on the assumed value of the atomic polarizability. If experimental values are used, the results for C3 are consistent with determinations based on the atomic deflection by a field-emission tip.
