Cleaning influence on p-GaN surfaces for photocathodes with negative electron affinity
Achieving an atomically clean surface is an important step to improving the quality of semiconductor photocathodes, but it is a challenging requirement for surface treatment . In order to understand the surface during the cleaning, the cesium deposition, and the storage of the photocathode, the use of an x-ray photoelectron spectrometer (XPS) is needed. The XPS probes the electronic structure of the p-doped gallium nitride (GaN) photocathode after each step of the preparation process. Using energies between 1200-0 eV the core levels of Ga, N, O, C and Cs are monitored.
