The carbon sublimation doping cell is used for carbon doping. The flux of carbon is generated by sublimating a high purity Pyrolithic Graphite filament. The Pyrolithic Graphite filament is heated up by direct flow of high intensity current. The region surrounding the filament is made out of the same PG material to guarantee the high purity of the carbon flux.
In normal operation, the filament is heated up in the range of temperature 1700°C-2100°C. The low thermal mass of the filament permits to change rapidly the doping levels. The filament emission area gives an excellent lateral uniformity for 2” and 3” substrates. The Filament surrounding is built in high purity Pyrolithic graphite to prevent any cross contamination due to outgassing.
The source can be customized in order to fit on a large variety of vacuum systems. Electrical feedthroughs are water cooled in order to stand the current density applied to the source.
