24 June 1993 Nonequilibrium behavior and defect diffusion in laser heating of semiconductors
Author Affiliations +
A new theoretical framework for modeling the nonlinear laser heating of semiconductors is presented by incorporating the dynamical behavior of semiconductors; the temperature-carrier coupling, the generation and recombination of defects, the diffusion of defects, the diffusion of impurities by defect-dopant pair mechanism, and chemical reaction between species. In this study, we apply our model to n-type silicon irradiated by a nanosecond pulsed Nd:YAG laser. The dynamical evolution of laser-semiconductor interaction process is examined by calculation of carrier, defect, and impurity concentration profiles.
