[en] Atomic layer doping of phosphorus (P) and arsenic (As) into Si was performed using the vapor phase doping (VPD) technique. For increasing deposition time and precursor gas flow rate, the P and As doses tend to saturate at about 0.8 and 1.0 monolayer of Si, respectively. Therefore, these processes are self-limited in both cases. When a Si cap layer is grown on the P-covered Si(001), high P concentration of 3.7 × 1020 cm-3 at the heterointerface in the Si- cap/P/Si-substrate layer stacks is achieved. Due to As desorption and segregation toward the Si surface during the temperature ramp up and during the Si-cap growth, the As concentration at the heterointerface in the Si-cap/As/Si-substrate layer stacks was lower compared to the P case. These results allowed us to evaluate the feasibility of the VPD process to fabricate precisely controlled doping profiles.
