Abstract

Experiments were conducted with SiGe film islands on a layer of borophosphorosilicate glass (BPSG). Initially the SiGe is under compression. Upon annealing, the glass flows and the SiGe islands relax by both inplane expansion and wrinkling. This paper provides a two-dimensional (2D) model for inplane expansion. The results from the model are compared with the experiments with small SiGe islands. The effect of winkling, which is ignored in the present model, is discussed qualitatively.
