Abstract

Ab initio total-energy calculations were used to examine (2×2) reconstruction models for the (111) and (1̄1̄1̄) surfaces of GaAs. For the (111) surface the lowest-energy Ga-vacancy geometry is determined; several mechanisms for Ga-vacancy formation are examined and other reconstructions are discussed. For the (1̄1̄1̄) surface it is shown that the As-vacancy model is unlikely and other geometries are considered. © 1986 The American Physical Society.
