Semi-insulating (SI) InP has been
industrially produced by doping Fe atoms as deep acceptors. Fe concentrations
in InP are, however, largely varied from top to tail along the crystal growth
axis due to impurity segregation. In the present work, we have examined the
possibility of vapor-phase Fe doping for fabrication of 50- and 75-mm-diameter
SI InP wafers with constant Fe concentrations using a wafer annealing procedure.
A small amount of Fe was charged with red phosphorus in ampoules in which InP
wafers were annealed. It was found that the vapor-phase doping is effective for
Fe doping of InP. The present technology can be applied for the fabrication of
low Fe-doped SI InP wafers with similar Fe concentrations of all wafers from
one InP ingot.
