Abstract: Isothermal annealing of boron or phosphorus implanted polycrystalline Si1-xGex thin films, with x varying from 0.3 to 0.55 was reported in this paper. In low temperature (<=600oC) annealing, gain boundary segregation causes both the conductivity and the Hall mobility to decrease during extended annealing. The effective activation of phosphorus was less than 20% and decreases with increasing Ge content. Boron activation could reach above 70%. It was also found that Si1-xGex could be oxidized at 600oC in a conventional furnace even with pure N2 protection.
