Abstract

Sheet resistance (Rs) reductions are presented for antimony and arsenic doped layers produced in strained-Si. Results show a modest Rs reduction for arsenic layers, a result of a strain-induced mobility enhancement, whereas for Sb, a superior lowering is observed from improvements in both mobility and activation. Tensile strain is shown to enhance the activation of dopant Sb whilst creating stable ultrashallow junctions when low-temperature processing is employed. Our results propose Sb as a viable alternative to As for the creation of highly activated, low resistance ultrashallow junctions for use with strain-engineered CMOS devices.
