In this study, we investigated the oxidation reaction kinetics on p- and n-type Si surfaces using real-time ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy. In the room temperature oxidation, it is found that oxidation reaction coefficient on n-Si(001) is larger than that on p-Si(001). The work function of the n-Si(001) surface shows negative value but p-Si(001) is positive value. From this result, we can estimate the adsorption positions of O atoms. O atoms have a negative charge in the bond of Si-O, so it can be assumed that oxygen is placed on the n-Si(001) surfaces, but it is subsurface in case of the p-Si(001) surface. In case of n-Si(001) substrates, the doped electrons spill out into the surface because many electrons exist in the substrate. As the result, oxidation reaction is promoted in the n-Si(001) surface. From these results, we found that there is a difference of oxidation kinetics depending on the conductivity.
