Abstract

In this paper, we report Current-Voltage (I-V), Capacitance-Voltage (C-V) and Deep Level Transient Spectroscopy (DLTS) measurements on ultra-shallow (p+/n) junctions obtained by boron implantation into crystalline and Ge preamorphized Si-substrates. Germanium implantations were carried out at the energies of 30, 60 and 150 keV at a dose of 1015 cm−2. Boron was then implanted at an energy of 3 keV at a dose of 1015 cm−2. Dopant activation was obtained by Rapid Thermal Annealing (RTA) performed at 950°C for 15s in a nitrogen ambient. The aim of this work is to study the relation that exists between a population of End-Of-Range (EOR) defects, measured by TEM, and electrical properties of the Ge preamorphized diodes. The electrical measurements allow us to give the conduction mechanism which dominates in the diodes. Moreover, DLTS measurements showed the presence of two majority-carrier traps in direct relation with the EOR defects, measured at Ec-0,22eV and Ec-0,47eV. The presence of energy-distributed G-R centers independent upon the preamorphization stage is also discussed. Nevertheless, high quality (p+/n) junctions can be obtained by this technology with a judicious choice of Ge implantation energy.
