Abstract

Phase formation in the Pd/GaP system is examined by transmission electron microscopy, Auger depth profiling, and x-ray diffraction of Pd films on (100) GaP, and by x-ray diffraction of bulk phase equilibria samples. The reaction of Pd films with GaP is initiated with the formation of an oriented hexagonal ternary phase, Pd 2 (Ga x P 1-x ). Another hexagonal ternary phase, Pd 12 (Ga x P 1-x ) 7 , forms in the intermediate stages of the reaction, and PdGa and PdP 2 are found to be in thermodynamic equilibrium with GaP. The Pd/GaP system is very similar to Pd/GaAs.
