dc.description.abstractFormation and electrical properties of nickel silicidized n-type Si and Si1-xGex epilayers on a Si substrate are comparatively studied. The improvement of thermal stability of germanosilicide can be attributed to the thicker NiSi(Ge) film and the delay of phase transformation with Ge incorporation, as well as the reduction in interface energy with Ge segregation at the interface. The Schottky-barrier heights (SBHs) of the contacts formed by sputtering Ni on the strained Si1-xGex (x = 0.07 and 0.2) epilayers significantly increase after germanosilicidation and with increasing annealing temperature, markedly contrasting to the quick drop of SBH of the silicidized Si contact made by the same process. The raise of SBH of the Ni/Si1-xGex contact after germanosilicidation and with increasing annealing temperature is dominated by a Fermi-level pinning effect due to Ge segregation at the interface and the generation of dislocations driven by strain relaxation in the Si1-xGex epilayers, rather than the reduction in work function when Ni transforms to NiSiGe during the germanosilicidation process.zh_CN
