We have carried out ab initio calculations of surface core excitations on finite cluster models of the GaAs(110) surface. For the Ga core excitation we find a localized excited state involving excitation into the empty Ga-4p orbital and bound with respect to the conduction band minimum (CBM) by 0.7 eV. This is in reasonable agreement with experiment (binding energy >~0.8 eV). This transition, which is not analogous to bulk core excitations, is termed a core surfaston to emphasize the character of the state. We find that the As core surfaston is above the CBM by 1.0 eV and hence should be difficult to observe.
