In Situ ATR-FTIR Observation about Surfactant/Hydrogen-TerminatedSi(111) Interface in Solution
Author(s) Toshihito Ohtake*

Development of novel functional devices has been expected by modification for Si surface. This study investigated immobilization and roles of the Si surface with flowing surfactant by in situ ATR-FTIR method. This result suggested that the surfactant prevented oxidation of the hydrogen-terminated Si surface from the higher concentration in aqueous solution. These would guard the Si surface against H2O molecules.
