ABSTRACT
The deactivation of the acceptor indium after chemomechanical polishing of p-type silicon is shown to result from the formation of a complex involving the indium atom and a positively charged, extremely fast-diffusing defect X. In the temperature range from 220 to 280 K, the dissociation frequency ν of this complex and the diffusion coefficient D of the defect X are thermally activated and satisfy the expressions ν=ν0 exp(-Ed/kT) and D=D0 exp(-Ea/kT) with ν0=2.6×1012 s-1, Ed=0.690 eV, D0=5×104 cm2/s, and Ea=0.665 eV.
