Abstract

We have investigated new synthetic methods to Si-Ge-C materials by UHV-CVD and novel chemical precursors. The reactions of (SiH 3) 4C and (GeH 3) 4C with GeH 4 and SiH 4 produce diamond structured materials with the general formula (CS 4) xGe y and (CGe 4) xSi y respectively. These reactions demonstrate the application of novel C-H free precursors that incorporate Si 4C and Ge 4C building blocks to prepare single phase materials containing a significant amount of carbon (5-6 at.%). They also indicate the remarkable degree of compositional control provided by the precursor to incorporate the Si 4C and Ge 4C molecular framework into the solid state. A range of Si 1-x-yGe xC y compositions were also prepared pseudomorphically on [1 0 0] Si at 450-500 °C via reactions of (SiH 3) 4C with mixtures of GeH 4 and SiH 4. The (Si 2Ge) 31C 6 composition appears to display ordering of the Ge and Si atoms in the structure. The incorporation of C in the Si planes seems to provide local strain centers which facilitate the formation of this ordered phase.
