The effect of oxygen implanted into epitaxial Si layers on the ability to getter Au to nanocavities, previously formed by H implantation and annealing, has been studied by Rutherford backscattering, transmission electron microscopy, and secondary ion mass spectrometry. We demonstrate that oxygen is gettered to cavities during extended annealing at 950 °C. Furthermore, the arrival of oxygen at cavities is not only shown to inhibit subsequent attempts to getter Au to cavities, but also to eject...[Show more]
