Ion implanted antimony (121Sb) is characterized as an n-type dopant in single crystal (100) oriented silicon. The required implantation equipment and critical parameters are discussed. The experimental procedures used in this study are presented along with the resulting data on dopant distribution and crystal damage annealing. The tradeoffs between antimony and arsenic, the more commonly used heavy n-type dopant, are examined from both a process end a device perspective. The context of this comparison is in applications that require a heavily doped layer beneath a thin deposit of epitaxial silicon. Results of a specific buried layer process characterization are included.
