Sheet Resistivity and Hall Effect Measurements of Aluminium Implanted Silicon and Silicon Films on Sapphire
Bulk silicon and silicon films on sapphire have been implanted with 40 keV aluminium ions. The doses used were between 2.5 x 1012 and 1.0 x 1016 ions/cm2. The annealing behaviour of the implanted layers was studied by sheet resistivity and Hall effect measurements. The annealing was performed in the temperature range 300 to 800°C. As a rule the sheet resistivity was found to be higher for aluminium implantations in silicon on sapphire than corresponding implantations in bulk silicon. It was also found that the recrystallization of a continuous amorphous layer occurs at 500°C in silicon (100) on sapphire, which is about 50°C lower than in bulk silicon (111).
