Quantification of germanium-induced suppression of interstitial injection during oxidation of silicon
The oxidation of silicon is known to inject interstitials, and the presence of silicon–germanium (SiGe) alloys at the Si/SiO2 interface during oxidation is known to suppress the injection of silicon self-interstitials. This study uses a layer of implantation-induced dislocation loops to measure interstitial injection as a function of SiGe layer thickness. The loops were introduced by a 50 keV 2 × 1014 cm−2 P+ room-temperature implantation and thermal annealing. Germanium was subsequently...[Show more]
