Abstract

We describe the synthesis and use of the novel molecular precursors C(SiH 3) 4, CH 3GeH 3, and SiH 3CH 2GeH 3 to generate silicon-carbon-germanium materials by ultrahigh vacuum chemical vapor deposition. By using these precursors in reactions with SiH 4 and GeH 4 between 470°C and 650°C we obtained: 1) heteroepitaxial Si 1-x-yGe xC y (y=0.04-0.06) alloys with C(SiH 3) 4; (2) polycrystalline alloys with carbon compositions ranging from 2-14 at.% with CH 3GeH 3; (3) mixtures of diamond cubic nanocrystals (Ge, Si 1-xGe x) and amorphous SiC with SiH 3CH 2GeH 3. The effect of the precursor chemistry on composition, crystallinity, and microstructure of the materials as characterized by Rutherford backscattering spectroscopy (RBS), secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is discussed.
