Paper Abstract

We have used the contactless and nondestructive technique of photoreflectance (PR) to study boron-ion implanted {100} CdTe both before and after annealing. The samples studied were implanted using 100 to 400 keV boron ions to a dosage of 1x1016/cm2 and some were annealed in vacuum at 500C for 1 hour. The spectral measurements made at 77K in the vicinity of the direct gap, Eo, indicate three dominant phases with distinctly different line widths that may originate in a nearly crystalline, partially crystalline and heavily damaged regions in the sample. A study of the E1 spectra and the changes in the line shapes in the vicinity of Eo with varying the pump penetration depth from ~2500A using the 6328A He-Ne laser line to <400A using a near-ultra violet.beam yields some insight into the depth distribution and volume fraction of the three phases.
