Abstract

Heavily-doped, ultra-shallow junctions in boron implanted silicon using pulsed laser annealing have been created. Laser energy in the nonmelt regime has been supplied to the silicon surface at a ramp rategreater than 1010°C/sec. This rapid ramp rate will help decrease dopant diffusion while supplying enough energy to the surface to produce dopant activation. High-dose, non-amorphizing 1 keV, 1e15 ions/cm2 boron is used. Four-point probe measurements (FPP) show a drop in sheet resistance withnonmelt laser annealing (NLA) alone. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) shows the NLA dramatically affects the defect nucleation resulting in fewer defects with post annealing. Hall mobility and secondary ion mass spectroscopy (SIMS) results are also shown.
