Paper Abstract

Varying the heating rate of rapid thermal annealing (RTA) reveals a broadband shift of room-temperature photoluminescence (PL) in 3×1016 cm−2 Si+-implanted 400-nm-thick SiO2 films after RTA at 1150°C in dry nitrogen. At a heating rate of 100°C/s, the PL peaks shift from 2.6 eV to 1.7 eV for isothermal RTA durations from 1 to 20 s. Additionally, decreasing the heating rate to 25°C/s does not significantly shift the PL peak in the films after the isothermal RTA for durations 1 s. The attractive features of RTA provide a valuable reference for manufacturing of optoelectronic devices.
