|Abstract:||The formation and thermal stability of nickel germanide on germanium substrate were examined by both electrical and physical characterization methods. Low resistivity (14 μΩ cm) mono-nickel-germanide was formed at a low temperature of 400°C on Ge substrate. The sheet resistance of nickel germanide changed with the germanide formation temperatures and had a similar characteristic as nickel suicide. However, the thermal stability study shows that NiGe formed on Ge substrate has a poorer thermal stability than NiSi on Si substrate, which is due to the lower activation energy of agglomeration in NiGe (2.2 ± 0.2 eV) compared to NiSi. ©2005 The Japan Society of Applied Physics.|
