Abstract
GaP tips prepared from whiskers grown by the vapour phase reaction, were analyzed using our combined-type atom-probe FIM by laser pulse operation instead of high voltage pulse operation. It was found that (1) The composition is Ga : P=1 : 1 at cryogenic temperature 45K in vacuum of better than 1 x 10-8 torr. (2) Much more cluster ions of phosphorus atom in laser pulse mode are detected in comparison to that in high voltage pulse mode. (3) Mass resolution for laser pulse operation is high enough to resolved the hydride ions even at linear type mode. We also make clear the influences of laser beam power density irradiated on the tip for field evaporation.
