Abstract

The effect of oxygen gettering by buried defect layers at post-implantation annealing of hydrogen implanted Czochralski (Cz) grown silicon has been investigated. Hydrogen ions were implanted with an energy of 180 keV and doses of 2.7.1016cm−2 into p-type Cz and for comparison into p-type float zone (Fz) Si. The samples were annealed at temperatures between 400 °C and 1200 °C in a forming gas ambient and examined by secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) in order to measure the hydrogen and oxygen concentration profiles. Spreading resistance probe (SRP) measurements were used to obtain depth resolved profiles of the resistivity. The observed changes of the resistivity after post-implantation annealing of hydrogen implanted Cz and Fz Si can be explained by hydrogen enhanced thermal donor formation processes (oxygen or hydrogen related) and charges at the SiOx precipitates. The effective oxygen gettering in hydrogen implanted Cz silicon is attributed to hydrogen enhanced diffusion of oxygen to buried defect layers.
