X-ray photoelectron spectroscopic (XPS) studies of inP surfaces subjected to a new method of hydrogen plasma treatment are reported here. The XPS analysis shows that the usually observed phosphorus loss can be reduced by the use of a 'sacrificial' inP immersed in the hydrogen plasmawith the test InP Sample kept away from the electrodes in the downstream. The resuits suggest that the 'sacrificial' inP loses P during theH plasma exposureand thus becomes a source of P to compensate for the loss suffered by the test InP kept downstream.
