The impact of Si interstitial (Sii) flux suppression on the formation of P junctions by rapid thermal annealing (RTA) is demonstrated. Here we investigate the role of amorphization coupled with C co-implantation on P diffusion and its activation. From experiments on C co-implants in a-Si versus c-Si, we conclude that only a small fraction of C interacts with Si interstitials (Sii). We have demonstrated that optimization of implants followed by spike RTA yields extensions suitable for gate lengths of 30nm, with vertical depth Xj=20nm (taken at 5×1018at.cm3), abruptness of 3nm/decade, and Rs=326Ω/◻.
