ABSTRACT
The physical and electrical characteristics of gallium (Ga) ion implanted <100> silicon, annealed for times of the order of seconds to several tens of seconds for temperatures in the range of 550–900 °C, are presented. It is shown that for the chosen doses of 1–6×1015/cm2 and energy of 100 keV highly electrically active p-type layers (approaching 100%) can be achieved. The highest activation being reached at temperatures below ∼650 °C with no profile distortion. For temperatures in excess of 800 °C this electrical activation decreases and significant profile movement occurs even for times as short as 2 s.
