ABSTRACT
We present results of open tube Zn diffusion into undoped and S-doped n-type InP over the temperature range 550–675 °C. The process yields reproducible results which are consistent with an interstitial-substitutional diffusion model. For the undoped samples, an activation energy of 1.52 eV and a diffusion constant of 4.9×10-2 cm2/s are obtained. For heavily S-doped samples, values of 2.34 eV and 1.4×103 cm2/s, respectively, result. The difference in activation energy which is comparable to the Fermi level difference in the two substrate types is consistent with the different diffusion mechanisms which occur in these two types of InP.

    A mixture of light and heavy atoms is considered. We study the kinetics of the light atoms, scattered by the heavy ones, the latter undergoing slow diffusive motion. In three-dimensional space we claim the existence of a crossover region (in energy), which separates the states of the light atoms...
