Paper Abstract

NiO is a metal-deficient p-type semiconductor with surface defects which are correlated with the non-stoichiometry. The dissociative H2 adsorption on the NiO surface takes place on oxygen-excess sites (over equilibrium). The H2 TPD spectra vary significantly with calcination temperature (stoichiometry) and chemical treatment UV laser radiation enhances H2 adsorption on the defective surfaces (non-stoichiometric) as compared with the stoichiometric ones, even chemically treated. The fourth harmonic of a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser is used for the NiO samples irradiation. The wavelength of the UV laser radiation is 266 nm, under the band-gap of the semiconductor.
