Abstract:We studied damage evolution and the influence on defect interactions as a function of Si self implantation dose in p/p+ silicon wafers. Highly boron doped 150 mm diameter silicon substrate wafers with a 2.5 μm thick nominally un-doped epitaxial layer (p/p+) were employed. Due to the misfit strain, misfit dislocations formed during the epitaxial growth process around the wafer edges. This localized dislocation distribution was utilized to study the role of the implant on both the nucleation and growth of the mi… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
