ABSTRACT
The effect of thin titanium carbide layer on the ion beam mixing of Ni and Si was studied. No mixing was observed following the ion beam bombardment at 600 keV to the fluence of 8×1015 Xe++/cm2. Furthermore, it was also found that Ti and C layers alone could prevent an ion beam mixing between Ni and Si, although in the Ti case mixing did occur between Ti and Ni. These results were compared to a thermodynamic model of ion mixing and found to be in qualitative agreement but relative quantitative agreement was poor.

    The diffusion behavior of boron (B) and nitrogen (N) implanted in 6H and 4H silicon carbide (SiC) samples was investigated using secondary ion mass spectroscopy. The samples were either coimplanted with B and N ions or implanted with each element alone. The annealing was performed at 1700 °C...

    Irradiation of a silicon-based planar heterostructure with 40-MeV argon ions leads to a decrease in the MOS structure capacitance and in the p-n junction photosensitivity range. The effects are explained by special features of the damage produced by fast ions in the crystal target.

    The influence of dose rate, i.e., ion flux, on ion beam mixing in Nb-Si bilayer samples was measured at room temperature and 325 °C. At the higher temperature, an increase in dose rate of a factor of 20 caused a decrease in the thickness of the mixed layer by a factor of 1.6 for equal total...
