ABSTRACT
The influence of photoexcitation on the formation of the defect structure in GaAs crystals implanted with 200 keV Ar[sup +] ions at doses of 1×10[sup 13],3×10[sup 13], and 5×10[sup 13]cm[sup –2] has been studied by high-resolution X-ray diffractometry. It was found that photoexcitation gives rise to annihilation of radiation-induced Frenkel pairs, and, thus, decreases the residual concentration of radiation-induced point defects. It is established that amorphization of the damaged layer proceeds via the formation and growth of clusters of radiation-induced point defects. The vacancy- and interstitial-type clusters are spatially separated—the former are located closer to the crystal surface than the latter. Photoexcitation hinders cluster growth and stimulates diffusion of interstitial defects into the substrate depth. © 2003 MAIK “Nauka / Interperiodica”.
