Defect structure of MBE-prepared GaAs(113)B surfaces — •Takayuki Suzuki, Yevgeniy Temko, and Karl Jacobi — Fritz-Haber-Institut der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, Faradayweg 4-6, D-14195 Berlin
GaAs(113)B surfaces were prepared by molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and studied in-situ (without breaking vacuum) by scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM). The topography of this structure, which was assigned to an (8 × 1) Wassermeier model recently , is confirmed. The (8 × 1) reconstructed surface consists of Ga-dimer zigzag chains staggered in two different atomic planes including a trench. The surface exhibits nearly no vacancies in the (8 × 1)-reconstructed surface. The following structural defects are observed: monoatomic steps, missing zigzag chains, zigzigzagzag kinks, and 2D dislocations. Furthermore, several adsorbed atomic or molecular species are observed, at the trench as well as at the topmost Ga-dimer zigzag chain. Finally, complete nuclei for 2D growth are also observed. Our observations are important for modelling growth on this surface.
