Composition and band structure of the native oxide nanolayer on the ion beam treated surface of the GaAs wafer
Выставление онлайн: 19 апреля 2018 г.
Detailed information on GaAs oxide properties is important for solving the problem of passivating and dielectric layers in the GaAs-based electronics. The elemental and chemical compositions of the native oxide layer grown on the atomically clean surface of an n-GaAs(100) wafer etched by Ar+ ions have been studied by synchrotron-based photoelectron spectroscopy. It has been revealed that the oxide layer is essentially enriched in the Ga2O3 phase which is known to be a quite good dielectric as compared to As2O3. The gallium to arsenic ratio reaches the value as high as [Ga]/[As] = 1.5 in the course of oxidation.The Ga-enrichment occurs supposedly due to diffusion away of As released in preferential oxidation of Ga atoms. A band diagram was constructed for the native oxide nanolayer on the n-GaAs wafer. It has been shown that this natural nanostructure has features of a p-n heterojunction.
