Abstract: Trace amounts of Pb and Cu were determined in gallium arsenide crystals by anodic stripping voltammetry on mercury drop electrode. Two types of electrodes were used: electrode of conventional dimension (r = 440 μm) and semimicroelectrode (r = 80 μm). The GaAs samples were dissolved in the mixture HCl—HN03r = 2:1) and analyzed. The detection limits of Cu and Pb for the macroelectrode were 13 ng cm-3 and 37 ng cm-3  , respectively, those for the semimicroelectrode were 6 ng cm-3  and 13 ng cm-3, respective­ly. The reproducibility of the results was about 10% for both types of electrodes. The accuracy of the results was checked by graphite furnace AAS.
