Paper Abstract

The chemistry, driven by 6.4 eV photons, of ammonia, phosphine, and arsine, adsorbed on GaAs(100), is compared. When molecularly adsorbed XH3 (XequalsN, P, and As) at low temperatures, ca. 100 K, is irradiated, molecular desorption and hydride bond cleavage occurs. The branching between these two channels varies strongly with X; desorption is favored for NH3 and As-H Bond cleavage favored for AsH3. The H atoms within the photochemically formed XH2 groups can also be removed with photons, but only by extensive irradiation.
