C-V carrier profiles for 200 eV and 30 keV Si FIB singly and doubly implant
ed and successively buried regions in GaAs using a FIB/MBE combined system
were investigated to show a possibility of formation of doping layer above
the 30 keV Si-implanted region which is desirable for formation of three-di
mensional semiconductor nano-structures. It is found that carrier density i
n the 30 keV Si implanted and buried region was reduced near the projected
range and the doping efficiency was less than half of that in samples fabri
cated by implantation without the successive burying after post-annealing.
For the 200 eV and 30 keV doubly implanted sample, the peak carrier density
for 200 eV Si was reduced by 40% compared with 200 eV single implantation,
The present result suggests that large amount of damage may be remained in
the implanted range and the post-annealing was less effective in the burie
d sample because of the existence of the overlayer-regrown cap layer. (C) 2
