Abstract:

The effect of laser annealing on ion implanted GaAs and Si has been assessed using optical reflectivity spectra. The spectra were recorded over the range of 2100A to 4500A and reflectivity peaks were obtained near 2400A and 4100A for GaAs and 2700A and 3700A for Si. The magnitude of these peaks was then observed as a function of annealing parameters. Laser annealing was carried out using a 30 nsec ruby laser pulse. The GaAs samples were implanted 120 KeV Te at a fluence of 10 to the 14th power ionssq. cm Si samples were implanted with 30 KeV In at a fluence of 10 to the 15th power ionssq cm. The reflectivity spectrum of implanted GaAs was found to return to that of unimplanted materials at an annealing energy density of approximately 0.35 J sq. cm. whereas the spectrum of Si was found to approach that of the unimplanted samples at energy densities of 1.34 Jsq. cm. The values obtained compare well with those obtained from other diagnostic techniques. Author
