The gettering of Pd to nanocavities in Si for implantation doses ranging from 5×10¹³ to 1×10¹⁵ cm¯² and annealing temperatures ranging from 750 to 1050 °C was investigated using Rutherford backscattering and cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy. For a given annealing temperature, the gettering efficiency increased as the dose decreased. For a given dose, maximum gettering efficiency was achieved at the intermediate temperatures studied. Competition between silicide formation and...[Show more]
