The Influence of the Surface Neutralization of Active Impurities on the Field-Electron Emission Properties of p-Type Silicon Crystals
Correlation dependences between variations of the structural-phase composition, morphology characteristics, and field-electron-emission (FEE) properties of surface-structured p-type silicon singlecrystalline (100)-oriented wafers have been studied during their stepwise high-dose carbon-ion-beam irradiation. It is established that the stepwise implantation of carbon decreases the FEE threshold and favors an increase in the maximum FEE-current density by more than two orders of magnitude. Physicochemical mechanisms involved in this modification of the properties of near-surface layers of silicon under carbon-ion implantation are considered.
