The molecular doping (MD) process consists of depositing a molecular precursor on a silicon substrate, covering the precursor with a cap layer and annealing the sample to decompose the precursor and diffuse dopant atoms within Si. In the literature, preliminary results have shown that dopant diffusion inside a substrate correlates with the presence or absence of the cap layer. The purpose of this work is to study how the cap coating changes the doping process and efficiency. The authors investigate and compare the electrical properties of silicon samples after MD doping with three different cap layers and without a cap layer. The authors examined a 500‐nm‐thick layer of SiO2 deposited by spin‐on‐glass (SOG), a 500‐nm‐thick layer of SiO2 deposited in a chemical vapor deposition (CVD) chamber at room temperature and a 100‐nm‐thick layer of oxidized silicon placed over and in contact with the samples to …
