When platinum is diffused at temperatures higher than 900°C in Cz or FZ low doped n-type silicon samples, which are then cooled slowly in the range [1-10]°C/min, a p-type doping leading to the formation of a pn junction can be observed by spreading resistance measurement. The lower the cooling rate, the deeper the junction is. This junction disappears after a second thermal treatment finishing with a quenching step. A platinum related complex formation is considered to explain this reversible doping behaviour. Different possible interactions between platinum and other impurities such as dopant atoms, intrinsic point defects, and common residual impurities (C, Oi, transition metallic atoms) are studied here. Experimental results from Pt diffusion processes in different qualities of silicon wafers, and simulation results, lead to the conclusion that the platinum related p-type doping effect is due to the formation of a Pts-Oi complex.
