Abstract

Photoemission-energy-distribution measurements of intrinsic surface states for Si, Ge, and GaAs have been made using synchrotron radiation in the 7-25-eV range. Occupied intrinsic surface states with Gaussian-shaped optical densities of states about 0.8 to 1.0 eV wide, centered at 0.75, 0.7, and 1.05 eV below the Fermi level, are observed for Si, Ge, and GaAs, respectively. These bands are centered at about 0.45, 0.75, and 0.5 eV below the valence-band edge Ev, respectively, rather than at or above Ev as has been generally concluded. © 1972 The American Physical Society.
