Abstract

The formation of cavity microstructures in silicon following helium implantation (10 or 40 keV; 1×1015, l×1016 and 5×1016 cm−2) and annealing (800 °C) is investigated by means of Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), Rutherford Backscattering Spectrometry and Channeling (RBS/C), and Elastic Recoil Detection (ERD). The processes of cavity nucleation and growth are found to depend critically on the implanted He concentration. For a maximum peak He concentration of about 5×1020 cm−3 the resulting microstructure appears to contain large overpressurized bubbles whose formation cannot be accounted by the conventional gas-release model and bubble-coarsening mechanisms predicting empty cavities. The trapping of Fe and Cu at such cavity regions is studied by Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS).
