Electrical and Optical Properties of Si+ and P+ Implanted InP:Fe
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 26 February 2011
Dual implantations of Si+ and P+ into InP:Fe were performed both at 200°C and room temperature. Si+ ions were implanted by 150keV with doses ranging from 5×1013 /cm2 to 1×1015 /cm2, while P+ ions were implanted by 110keV. 160keV and 180keV with doses ranging from 1×l013 /cm2 to 1×1015 /cm2. Hall measurements and photoluminescence spectra were used to characterize the silicon nitride encapsulated annealed samples. It was found that enhanced activation can be obtained by Si+ and P+ dual implantations. The optimal condition for dual implantations is that the atomic distribution of implanted P overlaps that of implanted si with the same implant dose. For a dose of 5×l014 /cm2, the highest activation for dual implants is 70% while the activation for single implant is 40% after annealing at 750°C for 15 minutes. PL spectrum measurement was carried out at temperatures from 11K to 100K. A broad band at about 1.26eV was found in Si+ implanted samples, of which the intensity increased with increasing of the Si dose and decreased with increasing of the co-implant P+ dose. The temperature dependence of the broad band showed that it is a complex (Vp-Sip) related band. All these results indicate that silicon is an amphoteric species in InP.
