Abstract

The spectral response and band features of cesium-covered GaAs have been investigated by using a spectral-response measuring instrument at room temperature. We find that the shape of the spectral- response curves is almost identical if the vacuum level is greater than the energy level of the conduction band minimum; otherwise, the shape changes with time. The preservation or change in the shape is attributed to the evolution of a surface barrier. By calculation of the derivatives of the spectral response, the band features of GaAs can be determined. We find six peaks in the spectral-response derivatives. These peaks are in excellent agreement with the photon energy positions determined by the transitions from different valence band peaks to different conduction band valleys.
