Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Organic polymer layer/p-InP(100) interfaces have been investigated using surface photovoltage spectroscopy (SPS) in conjunction with ultraviolet-visible absorption spectroscopy (AS), infrared transmission spectroscopy (IRTS), time-resolved photoluminescence (PL), and x-ray photoemission spectroscopy (XPS). Prior to deposition, the etched p-InP(100) surfaces exhibited two gap states, attributed to excess surface P and adsorbed O, respectively. Postdeposition measurements show that N-containing layers suppress the former state at the interface, while the latter state is suppressed if S and F are present in the organic polymer film. A mechanism of these interfacial phenomena is suggested.
