Abstract: Heteroepitaxial ternary CoxY1-xSi1.7 silicide (x > 0.27) has been formed by Co implantation into YSi1.7/Si(111). The formation of this compound is confirmed by an x-ray symmetric theta-2 theta scan. However, the theta-2 theta scan alone cannot discriminate between the possible phases (tetragonal, orthorhombic, or hexagonal) of this compound. On the other hand, Rutherford backscattering (RBS)/channeling confirms that this silicide is hexagonal and that its azimuthal orientation is CoYSi1.7[0001]//Si[111] and CoYSi1.7{$11 (2) over bar 0}//Si{110}. In addition, the lattice constants of the ternary silicide a(epi) = 0.3989 nm (which means that the lattice mismatch is 3.9% relative to the Si substrate! and c(epi) = 0.3982 nm have been determined by RBS/channeling and x-ray diffraction.
