Surface Band Structure Studies of Si Rich Reconstructions on 4H-SiC(1-100)
We have investigated Si-rich reconstructions of 4H-SiC( 00 1 1 ) surfaces by means of low-energy electron diffraction (LEED), x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), and angleresolved ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy (ARUPS). The reconstructions of 4H-SiC( 00 1 1 ) were prepared by annealing the sample at different temperatures in a flux of Si. Depending on the temperature different reconstructions were observed: c(2×2) at T=800°C, c(2×4) at T=840°C. Both reconstructions show strong similarities in the electronic structure.
