Abstract

IBS of buried α and β iron suicide layers was achieved by the implantation of 2 MeV 56Fe+ ions into (100) single crystal silicon substrates over a dose range of 3 × 1017 to 1 × 1018 cm“-2followed by a high temperature anneal. No photoluminescence was observed from the as-implanted samples which contained a discontinuous layer of βFeSi2 precipitates approximately 1.5 μm below the silicon surface. Upon annealing at 700°C, a 200 nm polycrystalline βFeSi2 layer was formed which gave a PL signal centred at 1.55 μm. After a 900°C anneal, the layer transformed to αFeSix with a resistivity of approximately 280μΩcm.
