Improvement of Crystal Quality of Epitaxial Silicon-Germanium Alloy Layers by Carbon Additions

Improved Si1-xGex/Si hetero-epitaxy has been achieved by RTCVD in the presence of small amounts of C3H8 during growth. Carbon presumably scavenges oxygen and acts as a surfactant to inhibit three dimensional growth.
