A synchrotron-radiation photoemission study of C60 deposited on a clean Si(001)-2×1 surface at room temperature is presented. It is found that the C60 molecules are chemisorbed on the Si(001)-2×1 surface with a characteristic of the covalent bond. A SiC60 hybridization causes charge transfer from the Si substrate to the C60 molecules. Consequently, induced surface components appear in the Si 2p and C 1s cores with opposite signs. To be specific for 1 monolayer coverage, two interface-induced Si 2p components are clearly resolved at the core-level shifts of +0.38 and +0.97 eV. For the C 1s cores, in addition to a C60-related peak at 284.50 eV, an induced peak shows up with a negative shift of -0.70 eV, suggesting that the carbon atoms hybridized with silicon surface atoms gain charge.
