Effects of boron doping on microcrystalline germanium carbon alloy (μc-Ge1-xCx:H) thin films have been investigated. We deposited boron-doped p-type μc-Ge1-xCx:H thin films by hot-wire chemical vapor deposition technique using hydrogen diluted monomethylgermane (MMG) and diborane (B2H6). A dark conductivity of 1.3 S/cm and carrier concentration of 1.7 x 1020 cm-3 were achieved with B2H6/MMG ratio of 0.1. Furthermore, the activation energy decreased from 0.37 to 0.037 eV with increasing B2H6/MMG ratio from 0 to 0.1. We also fabricated p-type μc-Ge1-xCx:H/n-type c-Si heterojunction diodes. The diodes showed rectifying characteristics. The typical ideality factor and rectifying ratio were 1.4 and 3.7 x 103 at ¡Ó 0.5 V, respectively.
Thermal stability of SiHn (n=1∼4) configurations in FZ silicon crystals grown in Ar/H2 has been investigated by means of infrared absorption spectroscopy. Infrared absorption peaks at 2210, 2192, 2123 and 1946 cm−1, which are due to SiH4, SiH3, SiH2 and SiH units in silicon lattice, has been observed. It is found that the concentration of SiH4 and SiH increase with the decrease in SiH2 and SiH3 concentration at 500°C, and vice versa at 600°C. Annealing results suggest thermally induced structural transformations of SiHn configurations. We propose a model of the transformations through the cleavage of adjacent Si-H bonds to form a Si-Si bond and a H2 molecule, as well as the reaction of a H2 molecule with a Si-Si bond.
