The current/voltage characteristics of ion beam synthesised CoSi2/Si (n - type) Schottky barrier diodes implanted with phosphorus to doses between 5 × 1012 and 2 × 1013 ions cm-2are examined after annealing at temperatures in the range 400° - 1000°C. For each dose of implanted phosphorus, the effective barrier height of the CoSi2/Si interface is successively reduced as the anneal temperature increases. The results of Secondary Ion Mass Spectroscopy (SIMS) analysis indicate that these changes are due to an increase in the space charge density at the interface. For lower annealing temperatures the increase in space charge density is attributed to activation of the phosphorus in the tail of the dopant distribution which extends across the CoSi2/Si interface. For higher annealing temperatures larger increases in the space charge density are attributed to a modified dopant distribution resulting from phosphorus diffusion and activation at the interface. For doses of 1 × 1014 P* cm-2and 2×1015P*cm2, ohrnie characteristics are seen after annealing at temperatures of 1000°C and 500°C respectively.
