A submicrometer-rule interconnection structure of the Al-Si layer to the BF2+-implanted Si region is described. The contact resistance of Al-Si to BF2+-implanted Si increases more than those to B+- or As+-implanted Si, as contact hole size is scaled down to around 1 µ2. Through SEM and TEM analyses, it is found that solid phase epitaxial growth of Si takes place on the contact interfaces, where crystalline defects induced by BF2+implantation act as seeds. Thus, the effective metal contact area to Si is reduced very much. In order to realize a stable metallization system, a TiN/Ti barrier metal structure is introduced. The TiN/Ti structure is optimized in terms of contact resistance and contact barriers, and its feasibility for submicrometer-rule CMOS VLSI's is clarified.
