Low Temperature Interactions Between Gold and Iron in Silicon

  • S. D. Brotherton (a1), P. Bradley (a1) and A. Gill (a1)

Abstract

The annealing kinetics of the gold-iron complex have been studied over the temperature range from room temperature to 400°C. From a consideration of the charge states of the gold and iron centres at room temperature it was concluded that the pairing was by Coulombic attraction. The binding energy of the centre was found to be 1.22 eV.

During the annealing processes the interstitial iron was found to be precipitating and this was shown to modify the details of the growth and dissociation rates of the gold-iron complex.
