We have studied the initial stages of the chemisorption of Al and Ga on the clean GaAs (110) surface by applying quantum chemical methods to small clusters representing Al or Ga on GaAs (110). These calculations suggest that at smallest coverages Al or Ga bind to a surface Ga atom; for higher coverages Al and the surface Ga interchange positions. We have obtained the binding energy, the chemical shifts of the Ga–3d, As–3d and Al–2p states, and the microscopic dipole associated with chemisorption of Al or Ga on GaAs (110). These results are compared to experimental values and further experiments are suggested.
