Charge state of intrinsic interstitial defects and their substitution of boron atoms in the silicon lattice

  • 29 Accesses


The displacement of boron atoms from silicon lattice sites by silicon interstitial atoms was studied, by galvanomagnetic and x-ray methods. The substitution is controlled by the charge state of the interstitial defects. The charge transfer was effected by a change in the level of ionization during implantation by varying the ion-beam density and during annealing by additional electron bombardment.
