Paper Abstract

Spectroellipsometric characterization of SIMOX (Si, Separated by IMplanted OXygen) with very thin top Si layer is presented. The measured spectra of (Psi) and (Delta) were analyzed with the model Air/SiO2/top-Si/embedded SiO2/c-Si, and are explained well by the use of the established table values of dielectric constants < (epsilon) > of Si and SiO2 and taking account of the thickness fluctuation in the embedded SiO2 layer with an appropriate thickness distribution function. Model dielectric functions are also applied to < (epsilon) > of the top Si layer to detect the size effect. It was found that the < (epsilon) > of top Si layer with thickness down to 4.3 nm is exactly the same as that of the single crystal silicon.
