ABSTRACT
Rapid thermal annealing (RTA) and furnace annealing of Ga-implanted Si were studied. Ga atoms implanted into Si are located on substitutional lattice sites in concentration above the solid solubility limit after short-time and low-temperature annealing. Low-resistivity shallow p+ junctions can be fabricated using this metastable layer. However, precipitation and redistribution of the Ga atoms were observed after high-temperature or longer time annealing. Shallow p+ junctions fabricated by Ga implantation and RTA are suitable for submicron complementary-metal-oxide-semiconductor devices.
