The surface was subjected to an HCl surface treatment to address the role of adsorbed charge on polarization screening. It has been found that while the Ga-face surface appears to be unaffected by the surface treatment, the N-face surface exhibited an increase in adsorbed screening charge density (1.6 +/- 0.5x10(10) cm(-2)), and a reduction of 0.3 +/- 0.1 V in the surface potential difference between the N- and Ga-face surfaces.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||American Institute of Physics||Copyright (published version):||2005 American Institute of Physics||Keywords:||Scanning Kelvin probe microscopy (SKPM);Electrostatic force microscopy||DOI:||10.1063/1.1869535||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
