Paper Abstract

Optical methods which provide the possibility of non-destructive control of structure changes arising from ion-photonic technological processing find of wide application for investigation of silicon and AIIIBV semiconductor compounds being of major importance in micro- and optoelectronics. IR spectroscopy of implanted, diffusive and epitaxial layers gives a rich information about the composition and impurity distribution. The influence of diffusion parameters on reconstructed impurity distribution profiles and p-n-junction depth are investigated. The role of the lattice absorption in GaAs determined by the interaction of IR radiation with optical phonons is shown for reflection and transmission spectra. For a more accurate fitting of the calculated and experimental dispersion dependencies it is necessary to take into account the concentration dependencies of the effective mass m* and the relaxation time (tau) of charge carriers. In this paper results of the computer simulation of IR spectra in the wide range of m* and (tau) variations for GaAs are presented also. It was drawn a conclusion about physical permissible values of m* and (tau) from the viewpoint of applicability of the IR diagnostics of semiconductor structures.
