    The atomic and electronic band structures of GaP/Si(001) heterointerfaces were investigated by ab initio density functional theory calculations. Relative total energies of abrupt interfaces and mixed interfaces with Si substitutional sites within a few GaP layers were derived. The electronic band structure of the epitaxial GaP/Si(001) heterostructure terminated by the (2×2) surface reconstruction consists of surface and interface electronic states in the common band gap of two semiconductors. The dispersion of the states is anisotropic and differs for the abrupt Si-Ga, Si-P, and mixed interfaces. Ga 2p, P 2p, and Si 2p core-level binding-energy shifts were computed for the abrupt and the lowest-energy heterointerface structures. The distinct features in the heterointerface electronic structure and in the core-level shifts open new perspectives in the experimental characterization of buried polar-on-nonpolar semiconductor heterointerfaces.
