  • Patent number: 10985021
    Abstract: A gallium nitride (GaN) substrate is injected with magnesium as a p-type dopant. The GaN substrate undergoes preheating through irradiation with light from halogen lamps in an atmosphere containing nitrogen and hydrogen, and further undergoes heating to a high temperature for a super-short time through irradiation with flashes of light from flash lamps. Heating the GaN substrate in the atmosphere containing nitrogen and hydrogen complements removed nitrogen, thus preventing nitrogen shortage. Such a heating process also enables heat treatment while supplying hydrogen to the GaN substrate. The heating process further enables crystal defects in the GaN substrate to be recovered. With these effects, the p-type dopant injected into the GaN substrate is activated with high efficiency.

  • Patent number: 10978319
    Abstract: Over a front surface of a silicon semiconductor wafer is deposited a high dielectric constant film with a silicon oxide film, serving as an interface layer, provided between the semiconductor wafer and the high dielectric constant film. After a chamber houses the semiconductor wafer, a chamber's pressure is reduced to be lower than atmospheric pressure. Subsequently, a gaseous mixture of ammonia and nitrogen gas is supplied into the chamber to return the pressure to ordinary pressure, and the front surface is irradiated with a flash light, thereby performing post deposition annealing (PDA) on the high dielectric constant film. Since the pressure is reduced once to be lower than atmospheric pressure and then returned to ordinary pressure, a chamber's oxygen concentration is lowered remarkably during the PDA. This restricts an increase in thickness of the silicon oxide film underlying the high dielectric constant film by oxygen taken in during the PDA.
