Ab initio density-functional-theory calculations have been performed to determine the structural and electronic properties of the (100) diamond surface with various hydrogen and oxygen terminations. Total energies indicate that an -OH-terminated surface is favoured over an oxygenated surface plus gas-phase hydrogen. Ionisation potentials and electron affinities (EAs) are reported for the different systems, and the distinction is made between bulk- and surface-related properties. A first-order correction is used to offer estimated surface EAs. A negative bulk EA is found for surfaces terminated with -H and -OH groups, although many surfaces have deep traps which can act as positive EA in the absence of band bending. © 2005 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
