Point-defect mediated diffusion in intrinsic SiGe-alloys
The aim of this thesis was to obtain fundamental diffusion data and to improve the understanding of point-defect mediated dopant diffusion in Si1- xGex alloys. The thesis consists of experimental studies published in international journals and a summary section. The experimental part consists of the following four articles: In article I, diffusion coefficients and Arrhenius parameters have been determined in relaxed intrinsic Si1-xGex in the whole concentration range (0<x<1). In article II, diffusion coefficients and Arrhenius parameters have been determined for Ga and Sn diffusion in relaxed intrinsic and relaxed heavily p-doped germanium. In article III, diffusivity values have been determined for Ga in relaxed intrinsic Si1-xGex in the whole concentration range at 907 ºC. In article IV, diffusion coefficients and Arrhenius parameters have been determined for Si in intrinsic B20-structured FeSi. All the experiments discussed employed the modified radiotracer technique. The radioactive tracers were produced at the IGISOL facility located in Jyväskylä, Finland (31Si and 66Ga) and at the ISOLDE facility located in CERN, Switzerland (123Sn). In the summary section, an attempt has been made to understand the diffusion behavior of substitutionally solved group III, IV and V elements in Si1-xGex alloys based on point-defect transport capacities and properties of pointdefect- impurity interactions. The dissection is based on best available literature data as well as the data obtained during this study (articles I-IV). ...

Decay estimates for time-fractional and other non-local in time subdiffusion equations in R^d Kemppainen, Jukka; Siljander, Juhana; Vergara, Vicente; Zacher, Rico (Springer, 2016)We prove optimal estimates for the decay in time of solutions to a rather general class of non-local in time subdiffusion equations in R d . An important special case is the timefractional diffusion equation, which has ...
Limits of lateral expansion in two-dimensional materials with line defects Koskinen, Pekka (American Physical Society (APS), 2021)The flexibility of two-dimensional (2D) materials enables static and dynamic ripples that are known to cause lateral contraction, shrinking of the material boundary. However, the limits of 2D materials' lateral expansion ...

(Wiley, 2020)Float-zone (FZ) silicon often has grown-in defects that are thermally activated in a broad temperature window of ∽300–800°C. These defects cause efficient electron-hole pair recombination, which deteriorates the bulk ...
