Tuning the electronic properties of semiconductors...

The electronic surface properties of GaAs and ZnO can be altered by chemisorption of partial monolayers of C60 derivatives. This effect appears to depend on the way the C60 moiety is coupled to the semiconductor surface, as shown by preliminary I-V investigations of (n-GaAs C60 derivative)/Au solid-state diodes (F. Diederich, D. Cahen et al., Adv. Mater. 2002, 14, 802-805).
