ABSTRACT
Presents a passivation technique for type III-V compound semiconductors based on ultraviolet photolysis of sulfur vapor. Attribution of photosulfidation to the increased photoluminescence intensity from gallium arsenide (GaAs) samples; Formation of surface sulfide on GaAs surfaces; Absence of hydrogenic sources in the passivation process.
