Local density of states and atomic structure of the stripped incommensurate phase, the √3 x√7 phase and the 1 x 1 phase of a monolayer of Pb on Si(111) are characterized by scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy. The dI/dV-images reveal congruent local density of states structures for the stripped incommensurate and the √3 x√ phase but suggest a hexagonal lattice of the local density of states for the 1x1 phase while the atomic structure consists of one more atom in the center of each hexagon. Vacancy defects and impurities show a depletion of local density of states for the stripped incommensurate and √3 x√7 phase. Vacancies and impurities show an increase and no clear depletion in local density of states for the 1 x 1 phase, respectively.
