The oxidation of H/Si(100) and H/Si(111) with high concentration ozone gas was investigated with X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy(XPS). The ozone oxidation of partially hydride-covered surface was observed. The hydrogen termination reduced the rate of oxygen insertion into silicon backbond. The reduction of oxygen insertion rate by the H-termination for H/Si(100) was larger than that for H/Si(111). The dissociation rate of ozone molecule on H/Si was estimated to be ≈0.2 with a directional mass analyzer.
