Abstract [en]

Strained Si/Si0.8Ge0.2/Si heterostructures are implanted at room temperature with 7.5 keV B+ and 33 keV BF2+ ions to a high dose of 2 x 10(15) ions/cm(2), respectively. The samples are subsequently subjected to three-step anneals (spacer anneal, oxidation anneal and rapid thermal anneal), which are used to simulate a real fabrication process of SiGe-based MOSFET devices. The damage induced by implantation and its recovery are characterized by 2 MeV He-4(+) RBS/ channeling spectrometry. A damage layer on the surface is induced by B+ implantation, but BF2+ ion implantation amorphizes the surface of Si/Si0.8Ge0.2/Si heterostructure. Channeling angular scans along the (110) axial direction demonstrate that the strain stored in the SiGe layer could be nearly completely retained for the B+ implantated and subsequently annealed sample. However, the strain in the BF2+ implanted/annealed SiGe layer has decreased drastically.
