The data obtained show the formation of an amorphous Si1-xC, layer on top of the amorphous Si one by successive Ge and C implantations. The fitting of the XPS spectra indicates the presence of about 70% of Si-C bonds in addition to the Si-Si and C-C ones in the implanted region, with a composition in the range 0.35<x<0.6. This points out the existence of a partial chemical order in the layer, in between the cases of perfect mixing and complete chemical order. Recrystallization of the layers has been achieved by ion-beam induced epitaxial crystallization (IBIEC), which gives rise to a nanocrystalline SiC layer. However, recrystallization is not complete, observing still the presence of Si-Si and C-C bonds in an amorphous phase. Moreover, the distribution of the different bonds in the IBIEC processed samples is similar to that from the as-implanted ones. This suggests that during IBIEC homopolar bonds are not broken, and only regions with dominant Si-C heteropolar bonds recrystallize 关键词: amorphous semiconductors;infrared spectra;ion implantation;Raman spectra;recrystallisation;Rutherford backscattering;semiconductor doping;semiconductor materials;silicon compounds;solid phase epitaxial growth;transmission electron microscopy;X-ray diffraction;X-ray photoelectron spectra;ion-beam synthesis;amorphous SiC films;structural analysis;recrystallization;ion implantation;Raman scattering;transmission electron microscopy;Rutherford backscattering;X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy;XPS spectra;chemical order;ion-beam induced epitaxial crystallization;semiconductor;SiC
