Molecular oxygen adsorbed on (110) and polycrystalline Cu surfaces has been investigated by UPS, XPS, AES, HREELS and LEED. Molecularly adsorbed $O_2$ on the (110) surface shows the characteristic three-peak HeII spectrum due to $\pi_g$, $\pi_u$ and $\sigma_g$ orbitals, accompanied by an O-O stretching frequency at 660 $cm^{-1}$. On the polycrystalline Cu surface, adsorbed $O_2$ shows the three peak HeII spectra with a considerably smaller separation between the $\pi_u$ and $\sigma_g$ band and two O-O stretching bands at 610 and 880 $cm^{-1}$. $O_2$ adsorbed on the Cu(110) surface gives rise to a (1 × 1) LEED pattern and characteristic K $\pi^*\pi^*$ transition in the Auger spectrum.
