Abstract

The role of the dopant activation on the segregation efficiency during the formation of platinum silicide (PtSi) is investigated in this paper. Using an implant before silicidation technique, we first demonstrate an important Schottky Barrier Height (SBH) modulation for As and B segregation. In the case of As, we highlight that an activation of the dopants before the silcidation does not impact the SBH modulation. On the contrary, an important impact of the dopant crystalline position is evidenced for Boron. Also, a comparison of conventional implant versus a PLAsma Doping (PLAD) highlights the suitability of the latter implantation tool for the SBH modulation. Those results are interpreted on the basis of SIMS depth profiling.
