Hydrogen desorption kinetics from silane/, disilane/, and D/Si(100)-2×1 surfaces with and without thermal processings have been investigated using temperature-programmed desorption (TPD) measurements. In contrast to previously reported first-order desorption kinetics from H/Si(100) surface, the kinetics became higher-order under certain conditions of hydrogenating gases and thermal processings. Specifically, the hydrogen desorption from a post-annealed, silane-saturated surface showed the highest reaction order of all the combinations. A unified explanation is given to these results using the preparing of surface hydrogen atoms at a dimer.
