The incorporation of hydrogen during vapor phase epitaxy was investigated using secondary ion mass spectroscopy, low temperature photoluminescence, and capacitance-voltage measurements. It was found that hydrogen incorporation is strongly dependent on the concentration of the acceptor dopants aluminum and boron, regardless of changes in the doping concentration caused by varying the concentration ratio between carbon and silicon or the dopant precursor flow. An electrical passivation of the acceptor dopants was found and could be reduced by annealing at temperatures above 1000 degrees C. At the same anneal temperature hydrogen-related photoluminescence was considerably reduced and the diffusion of hydrogen was detected. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science S.A.
