Abstract

The interface formation between Sb(111) single crystals and evaporated indium has been studied with various spectroscopic techniques. It is shown from an Auger intensity analysis that a layer-growth of InSb is obtained at 550 K. LEED is used to determine the overlayer atomic geometry. The InSb layer is ordered and a lattice parameter close to the value for InSb(111) is obtained. The InSb formation is confirmed by the chemical shift of the Sb 4d and In 4d core lines with XPS.
