Carbon doping of silicon has gained interest since in high concentrations, carbon can reduce oreven suppress undesirable diffusion of the base dopant boron in silicon-based bipolar transistors. This behavior can only be understood in taking into account the silicon point defects i.e. vacancies and self-interstitials. In this work, we observe the oversaturation of vacancies produced by a high carbon concentration duringannealing. Experiments with a vacancy diffusing dopant, Antimony, are shown and prove this effect: in a carbon rich sample, the antimony diffusion is enhanced about 8 times compared to samples with a much lower carbonconcentration. We also investigate the carbon co-precipitation with oxygen. The carbon precipitation, asSiC, is facilitated with a high oxygen concentration. We explain this affinity by an exchange of point defects and a volume compensation. Finally, we show the precipitation of oxygen in relation to the vacancy oversaturation at 900°C.
