Abstract

Sil-xGex, undoped strained layers with a pure Si-capping layer were grown epitaxially by UHV CVD on Si (100) substrates. The samples were subjected to thermal treatments corresponding to typical deviceprocessing. Effects connected with thermally induced relaxations were studied by Raman scattering, XRD, photoluminescence (PL) and defect etching. The thickness of the layers was determined from X-ray reflectance measurement. Strain values for the as-grown and relaxed samples were extracted from Raman scattering, XRD measurements and defect etching and correlated. Sil-xGex-layer related peaks were observed in PL spectra of several samples. An explanation why those peaks are not observed in all the samples is suggested.
