Electrical Properties of Copper Silicide/Silicon Interfaces

  • B.G. Svensson (a1)

Abstract

The electrical properties of Cu/Si(100) and Cu3Si/Si(100) interfaces have been studied using both n- and p-type silicon samples. Current-voltage and capacitance-voltage measurements were performed in the temperature range 80-295 K in order to monitor Schottky barrier formation and electrical carrier concentration profiles. Deep-level transient spectroscopy was employed to observe Cu-related energy levels in the forbidden band gap of Si, and different ion beam analysis techniques were applied to study the interfacial reaction between Cu and Si. Emphasis is put on determination of Schottky barrier heights and their variation with temperature, dopant passivation by Cu atoms and interaction of Cu with irradiation-induced point defects in silicon.
