Facet formation in submicron selective growth of Si/SiGe

K. L. Wang, Dawen Wang

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The paper reviews the work in mostly Si and SiGe epitaxy and some III-V work on patterned substrates. Results of metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD), low pressure chemical vapor deposition (LPCVD), gas source molecular beam epitaxy (GSMBE), and solid source molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) were discussed in the context of facet formation and mass accumulation. A model was shown to explain the facet formation and its evolution in the process, if growth. Further work on surface diffusion and nucleation processes as functions of temperature and other growth parameters will provide needed information for accurate modeling of the facet growth process.
