Angle-Resolved XPS Analysis of Oxidized Polycrystalline Sic Surfaces
The nature of surface oxide and of adsorbed hydrocarbons (or free carbon) on dense, polycrystalline SiC has been studied using angle-resolved x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The oxide appears to be very close to the composition of SiO2, and no evidence was found for a change in the composition with depth from the surface. The thicknesses of the SiO2 and the hydrocarbon layers were also estimated from expressions for the x-ray photoelectron intensity.
