Abstract
Atmosphere water influence in the nanostructured silicon (NSS) was investigated by IR-spectroscopy and electron work function measurement. Long-term non-reversible dynamics of IR-spectra was found as a result of 100% humidity influence on the nanostructured silicon. It was indicated that air humidity affects on the work function. Dynamics of the electron work function consists of reversible and non-reversible components. Reversible component appears as strong anti-correlation between work function and humidity. Work function change of NSS is about 0.4 eV while the humidity changes between 0% and 100%. Reversible component can be explained by physical sorption of water molecules on the surface. Non-reversible component manifests as long-term decreasing trend of work function in humid atmosphere. Transition curve during abruptly humidity changes alters its shape. Non-reversible component can be explained by chemisorption of water.
