We performed density functional calculations for ultra-thin bismuth surface alloys: surface alloys of bismuth and face-centered cubic metals Bi/M(111)-(3×3)R30° (M=Cu, Ag, Au, Ni, Co, and Fe). Our calculated Rashba parameters for the Bi/Ag are consistent with the previous experimental and theoretical results. We predicted a trend in the Rashba coefficients αR of bands around the Fermi energy for noble...
