Paper Abstract

This paper reports on further research into the structure and properties of the cleaved surfaces of InP, using vacuum cleavage luminescence detection methods. A detailed study is described on cleavage luminescence from InP both in vacuum and in ambient. Two cleavage luminescence signals were found, one at 1.25eV (bulk band gap radiation), called the A-signal, and the other at 1.9±0.3eV (surface defects signal), called the C-signal. All the signals have very short duration - about 10μs. The true duration could be much less. The signal C occurred both in vacuum and in air but the signal A was quenched in air.
