GaP/Si(100) is considered as quasi-substrate for lattice-matched GaPN/Si photoelectrochemical tandem diodes [1]. The formation of the crucial polar-on-nonpolar heterointerface in vapor phase epitaxy ambient is studied here by in situ reflection anisotropy spectroscopy (RAS) in combination with ab initio density functional theory (DFT). We can choose between energetically and kinetically [2] driven Si(100) step formation, which results in either A-type or B-type majority domains of Si dimers. The sublattice orientation of the subsequently grown GaP film depends on the type of Si surface. In an abrupt interface model [3], Si–P bonds are found to be favored. Ab initio DFT calculations [4] show that Si–P bonds are energetically favored over Si–Ga bonds at abrupt interfaces. Charge can be compensated in an in-plane (2x1) interface unit cell with a Si to P (Ga) atomic mixing ratio of 0.5:0.5 which is favorable in thermodynamic equilibrium.
