InP(100) surfaces treated with Na2Sx9H20 and CnH(2n+1)SH are examined by contact angle measurement, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and atomic force microscopy to determine the chemical and thermal behavior of these passivated surfaces. The surfaces coated by octadecanethiol (n = 18) self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) are found to be more stable toward oxidation than the S-passivated surface. The chemical stability of octadecanethiol SAMs in various environments is examined. The thiol monolayer… CONTINUE READING
