ABSTRACT
Arsenic depth distributions in silicon-on-sapphire films, after annealing at 900 °C for a range of times, have been studied by Rutherford backscattering and spreading resistance techniques. A continuum pipe diffusion model is developed which accounts satisfactorily for the rapid diffusion and segregation effects observed. In addition, the same model predicts two-dimensional dopant profiles with several novel features relevant to microelectronic device processing.
