The use of atomic hydrogen for the low temperature treatment of ZnTe substrate surface was discussed. The hydrogen treatment at 100°C removed the surface oxide of the compound prior to its nucleation. The reconstructed surface was achieved at 230°C through annealing and the nucleation was also confirmed.
