Arsenic precipitate-induced dislocation loops generated at the projected range Rp of As in high-dose As-implanted, annealed (100) Si are eliminated, if oxygen-atom concentrations at the Rp region are high, i.e., above about 1×1020 atoms/cm3 . This is confirmed by the following two experiments: 80 keV, 2×1016 As+/cm2, 18-nm-thick through-oxide implantation together with subsequent annealing and a double implantation of 80 keV, 2×1016 As+ /cm2 and 22 keV, 5×1015 O+ /cm2 , followed by an annealing sequence. Experimental results suggest that the bonding of several As atoms with one oxygen atom suppresses As clustering.

    IR spectroscopy study is indicative of the change in the relative concentration of interstitial oxygen in silicon monocrystals after their treatment by using the magnetic field. This is an evidence of a considerable effect of magnetic field on the defect structure of the investigated crystals.

    The reaction of lithium dienolates derived from N,N-dialkylsenecioamides (1a–1c) with triorganosilyl electrophiles occurs initially at the oxygen atom predominantly, and is followed by an O → C silicon migration to afford the γ-silylated senecioamides (4a–4h). The...

    Doped polycrystalline Si (poly-Si) gate electrodes on HfO2 films on Si substrates are found not to cause as large shifts in the flat band voltage as those of SiO2 on Si. This effect has been attributed to a weak pinning of the Fermi level at the top poly-Si HfO2 interface. The effect is shown to...
