Abstract

Transient Enhanced Diffusion (TED) of dopants in Si is the consequence of the evolution, upon annealing, of a large supersaturation of Si self-interstitial atoms left after ion bombardment. In the case of amorphizing implants, this supersaturation is located just beneath the c/a interface and evolves through the nucleation and growth of End-Of-Range (EOR) defects.

For this reason, we discuss here the relation between TED and EOR defects. Modelling of the behavior of these defects upon annealing allows one to understand why and how they affect dopant diffusion. This is possible through the development of the Ostwald ripening theory applied to extrinsic dislocation loops. This theory is shown to be readily able to quantitatively describe the evolution of the defect population (density, size) upon annealing and gives access to the variations of the mean supersaturation of Si self-interstitial atoms between the loops and responsible for TED. This initial supersaturation is, before annealing, at least 5 decades larger than the equilibrium value and exponentially decays with time upon annealing with activation energies that are the same than the ones observed for TED. It is shown that this time decay is precisely at the origin of the transient enhancement of boron diffusivity through the interstitial component of boron diffusion. Side experiments shed light on the effect of the proximity of a free surface on the thermal behavior of EOR defects and allow us to quantitatively describe the space and time evolutions of boron diffusivity upon annealing of preamorphised Si layers.
