Abstract: The impact of the phosphorus concentration [P] on the solid-phase epitaxial regrowth rate of preamorphized p-type germanium has been studied by a combination of Rutherford backscattering, secondary ion mass spectrometry, and transmission electron microscopy. It will be shown that for P concentrations in the 10(18) -5 x 10(19) cm(-3) range, the regrowth rate is significantly enhanced compared with undoped germanium, while the opposite holds for [P] above about 4-5 x 10(20) cm(-3). This regrowth retardation is shown associated with segregation across the crystalline/amorphous boundary and snow plow of P in excess of the metastable solid solubility in the recrystallized material.
