Diffusion of elements migrating via a substitutional-interstitial mechanism in III-V compounds may induce nonequilibrium concentrations of native point defects. It has generally been assumed in the literature that, in the presence of dislocations, the point defects approach their thermal equilibrium concentrations. In contrast, it will be shown here that in III-V compounds the most favorable concentration a perturbed mobile species in one sublattice can reach corresponds to that of establishing a local equilibrium relation with another mobile species in the other sublattice if long-range transport of the defects to crystal surfaces is absent.

    In silicon, rapid thermal processes are observed to induce recombination centers whose distribution as a function of the depth below the surfaces shows an extremum towards the middle of 1000-μm-thick samples. This nonhomogeneous defect activation is correlated to a surface effect....

    We present a self-calibrating version of non-contact electrical doping profiling that is a refinement of our method based on monitoring of the decays of two voltages during the collapse of deep depletion. Small signal ac-photovoltage, appropriately calibrated, provides a measure of the depletion...

    A general model of ultrashallow doping by excimer laser annealing is derived from only one diffusion-segregation equation. In our model, the relative dopant profile after some laser shots reaches a stationary distribution, which only depends on the segregation and liquid-phase diffusion...
