The surface composition of an alloy is rarely the same as the bulk composition due to segregation, and it changes with changing reaction conditions. Segregation is a ubiquitous issue in alloy catalysis, and makes modeling alloy surfaces a challenge, because we need to know the surface composition to model them! In this work, we take a first step in using density functional theory to build a neural network potential that we can use with Monte Carlo simulations to predict the temperature dependent surface composition of an Au-Pd bulk alloy in a vacuum. This approach yielded quantitative predictions in good agreement with experimental measurements over the entire bulk composition range.
