Scanning microbeam Rutherford backscattering spectrometry (mu -RBS) has been employed to investigate local loading effects of non-selective epitaxial growth (NSEG) of SiGe on Si in structures consisting of apertures in an SiO2 mask. The structure sizes were 22 mum x 22 mum. 42 mum x 42 mum, 82 mum x 82 mum and 500 mum x 2000 mum. From the measured thickness and Ge content, it was concluded that in NSEG local loading effects for the structure sizes used are small or absent.
