Recombination activity of iron-gallium and iron-indium pairs in silicon

Schmidt, Jan; Macdonald, Daniel


The recombination activity of iron-gallium (FeGa) and iron-indium (FeIn) pairs in crystalline silicon is studied by means of injection-dependent carrier lifetime measurements on Fe-implanted, Ga- and In-doped p-type silicon wafers of different resistivities (0.3–15Ωcm). Compared to FeB pairs, FeGa and FeIn pairs are found to be much more effective recombination centers in p-type silicon. Using Shockley–Read–Hall statistics we determine the energy level Et of the FeGa-related center to be 0.20eV...[Show more]
