Abstract

The diffusivity of implanted As in crystalline Si has been measured using Rutherford backscattering and channeling for specimens annealed at temperatures between 850 and 1000°C under pressures up to 30 kilobars. The diffusivity, at a given temperature, was found to increase with pressure with a maximum increase of a factor of ten. This diffusivity enhancement can be described by an average activation volume of -5.7±.8 cm3/mole. The activation enthalpy ranges from an ambient value of 4.5 eV to 3.6 eV at 30 kilobars
