Surface x-ray diffraction has been employed to quantitatively assess the surface structure of alpha-Cr2O3(0001) as a function of oxygen partial pressure at room temperature. In ultrahigh vacuum, the surface is found to exhibit a partially occupied double layer of chromium atoms. At an oxygen partial pressure of 1 x 10(-2) mbar, the surface is determined to be terminated by chromyl species (Cr=O), clearly demonstrating that the presence of oxygen can significantly influence the structure of alpha-Cr2O3(0001)
