    Gd-doped HfO2 films were deposited on p-type silicon substrates in a reducing atmosphere. Photoemission measurements indicate the n-type character of Gd-doped HfO2 due to overcompensation with oxygen vacancies. The Gd 4f photoexcitation peak at 5.5 eV below the valence band maximum is identified...

    This work studies the effect of a double barrier on the photoresponse spectrum of SiGe/Si heterojunction internal photoemission infrared photodetectors. Results are compared with those of a single barrier sample which has nominally the same parameters. It is shown that the cut-off wavelength of...

    We have used photoemission methods to directly measure the valence and conduction band offsets at SrTiO[sub 3]/Si(001) interfaces, as prepared by molecular-beam epitaxy. Within experimental error, the measured values are the same for growth on n- and p-Si, with the entire band discontinuity...

    A widely used assignment scheme for Si 2p core-level photoemission studies of silicon oxidation relies solely on the formal oxidation state of the silicon. The tacit assumption of this assignment methodology is that second-neighbor effects have no measurable effect on observed Si 2p binding...

    We report the chemical stability of the hybrid Fe/ZnSe/GaAs heterostructure prepared by molecular-beam epitaxy. Analyses of photoemission spectra show a remarkable chemical stability of the Fe/ZnSe(001) interface up to 380 °C, where the effective disruption of the heterostructure occurs,...

    When exposed to phosphorus, the (2×4) GaAs surface tends rapidly to roughen whereas it is not the case for the (2×4) InAs one, even after long exposure times. X-ray photoemission measurements show that the incorporated phosphorus amount is similar in both cases. The elastic energy...

    We apply the principles of Optical Orientation to measure by Mott polarimetry the spin polarization of electrons photoemitted from different group-IV heterostructures. The maximum measured spin polarization, obtained from a Ge/Si0.31Ge0.69 strained film, undoubtedly exceeds the maximum value of...
