Structural-Chemical Properties of InP Own Oxides


In this article the analysis of IR reflection-absorption spectra of InP own oxides, formed by anodic, thermal and chemical oxidation was made. The influence of oxidation methods, heat treatment and presence of metal covering at the outside surface of own oxides on their structural-chemical properties were determined. On the basis of received results, the explanations of the causes of the change in electrophysical properties of InP own oxides were obtained.
