Abstract

A tecnique for cleaving semiconductor single crystals under ultrahigh-vacuum conditions is proposed. A system for in situ cleavage of samples for ultrahigh-vacuum scanning tunneling microscope (STM) has been developed. STM studies of the surfaces of InAs single crystals with n and p-type bulk conduction have been performed on an Omicron ultrahigh-vacuum facility.
