Abstract

A study was made of the formation and properties of approximately equals 15 nm films of Pd on GaAs(100) and (110) substrates as a function of annealing temperature. Ultraviolet and x-ray photoelectron spectra (UPS and XPS) have established several distinctive phases; coupled with scanning electron microscopy studies, agglomeration has been observed at elevated temperatures. Transmission electron diffraction studies permit more detailed phase identification at specific temperatures. Electrical studies permit characterization of both interface properties and bulk transport properties of the reacted layer. In contrast to previous work, we find no Pd-As binary phases. After high temperature anneals (T//a greater than 350 degree C), only PdGa is observed.
