摘要

In situ scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) has been used to examine the etching of an n-Si(001) electrode in 0.1 M NH4F. Cathodic polarization facilitated chemical etching of Si(001) to give {111} microfacets as a result of the tendency of Si to form a monohydride terminated surface. Time-dependent in situ STM atomic images were obtained to demonstrate the preferential etching at the kinks and steps. From the results of the time-dependent imaging, local etching rates were evaluated for the specific crystallographic directions. A Si(001):H-(1×1) square structure was also obtained, demonstrating the presence of dihydride configuration in the beginning of the etching.
