For low energy B (LEB) implantation into Si, the channeling tail is larger than for BF2+ implantation, so Ge+ preamorphization is expected to provide a shallower junction. We studied the Ge+ and B+ implantation damages and the damage-induced B diffusion. The substrate implanted Ge+ with 2×l014 cm-2, that is, a complete amorphization, retains less residual defects after RTA. However the sheet resistivity (S) is higher than the sample implanted with only LEB. Solid phase epitaxy (SPE) of amorphized layer causes B out-diffusion. The diffusion length of the amorphized substrate is smaller than that of LEB. We expect that the B diffusion is enhanced by the LEB damage, which corresponds to the enhanced diffusion of light damage.
