Paper Abstract

Type IIa diamond crystals were implanted with boron ions with or without prior carbon ion implantation. The samples were kept at liquid nitrogen temperature during both implantation steps. A strong near-edge optical absorption band appeared after implantation, and partially recovered during annealing at 800 °C. For the highest B implantation fluence, optical absorption peaks at 2800 to 3000 cm-1 were observed that were in the same vicinity as the absorption peaks attributed to substitutional boron atoms in natural p-type diamond. Electrical measurements for three of the samples demonstrated well-defined activation energies that could be associated with hopping conduction and/or activation of B dopant atoms. This work shows that p-type doping in diamond by boron ion implantation is feasible, using a suitable combination of low temperature implantation and subsequent annealing.
