Results are presented of implantation and diffusion
study of boron (B) in germanium (Ge). B implantation
was carried out in Ge with differrent energies and to different
doses. High-resolution secondary ion mass spectroscopy
(SIMS) was used to obtain concentration profiles after furnace
annealing. The as-implanted profiles show a long tail possibly
due to enhanced diffusion. A limited diffusion has been observed
after furnace annealing. Using T-SUPREM, diffusivity
value of 1.5 (:J:0: .3) X 10-16 cm2/s at 850°C has been extracted.
This value is two orders of magnitude lower than previously
reported values. The results question the change in diffusion
mechanism of B diffusion in SiGe alloys from low Ge leveIs to
high Ge leveIs.
