Research topics

MMMI belong to the Multiscale Materials Modeling Group, part of the Research Group on Electronics at the University of Valladolid. Our research is focused on the theoretical and computational study of phenomena that emerge from nonequilibrium processes in solid-state materials with emphasis in ion beam induced defects in crystalline semiconductors such as silicon.

My activity within this group gathers the following topics:

  • Damage generation during irradiation of materials
    Improved BCADuring irradiation, energetic particles penetrate into the target and lose their energy through interactions with its atoms. A target atom is displaced from its lattice position when it receives from these interactions an energy higher than the displacement energy threshold Ed. For energy transfers above Ed, the target atom can become a recoil leaving behind a vacancy and generating an interstitial defect where it stops, in addition to further displacements that can be produced as it travels through the material. When energy transfers to target atoms are well above Ed, damage generation can be regarded as a ballistic process. As energy transfers decreases in magnitude and approach Ed, multiple interactions with target atoms become important. These multiple interactions can result in a local melting (thermal spike regime) and the subsequent generation of amorphous regions at energy transfers per atom much lower than Ed.
    I have used classical molecular dynamics simulations to study damage generation in Si and Ge. I have developed a general framework for damage generation that captures the transition from the ballistic to the thermal regime. It has been successfully applied to monatomic and molecular implantations, where non-linear effects on damage generation occur. Although the model was based on semiconductors, it can be applied with appropriate calibration to other materials.
  • Amorphous films
    B doping of aSiThe use of heterojunctions between hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) and crystalline silicon (c-Si) has attracted much attention in recent years for the fabrication of solar cells with efficiencies up to 23%. Furthermore, the possibility of doping a-Si and a-Si:H and their lower production cost with respect to c-Si have made them the materials of choice for many different applications in optoelectronics and photovoltaics. Yet, these promising perspectives are highly limited by the large defect density present in bulk a-Si and at the a-Si:H/c-Si interfaces, which reduces the doping efficiency and increases the interface carrier recombination losses in solar cells.
    I have used ab initio simulations to study the relevant defects states in a-Si and at its interface with c-Si, and how these defects interact with charge carriers. I have identified intrinsic hole traps in a-Si associated to locally strained regions, and I have analyzed their interaction with boron atoms. I have found that the low doping efficiency in the case of B is an intrinsic property of amorphous silicon since, even if it is well relaxed, locally strained regions exist. This fact limits the application of amorphous silicon in devices that require higher carrier densities.
  • Defects in semiconductors
    Defects in cSiThe presence of structural defects in crystalline semiconductors often leads to shallow or deep levels in the gap that modify the usual valence band ↔ conduction band carrier transitions, and may also act as additional scattering centers. This often has adverse effects on the performance of devices and the efficiency of solar cells. In addition, semiconductor radiation detectors and devices exposed to radiation may undergo the phenomenon of type inversion, attributed to charge trapping in damage structures. But damage may also have beneficial applications as some defect clusters may be optically active bestowing enhanced optical performance on silicon. The understanding of defect effects is key for defining defect engineering strategies. Because of the large variety of defects that often coexist, experimental structural and spectroscopic characterization techniques find it difficult to assign a given signal to a specific defect.
    Using ab initio simulations I analyze how the band diagram of crystalline Si is modified by the presence of defects, and how the induced mid-gap defect states can affect the recombination of carriers. I also analyze the different atomic configurations of a given defect, evaluate their formation energy, and how defects interact among others and result in new defects.

PhD Thesis

Front Cover I finished my Doctorate studies on Physics on March 15th 2010. The title of my Thesis is "Multiscale modeling of dopant implantation and diffusion in crystalline and amorphous silicon". The aim of the thesis is the understanding and modeling of dopant implantation in crystalline silicon and of dopant properties and atomic diffusion in amorphous silicon. In particular we have focused on the following objectives:

  • The characterization and quantification of damage generation during monatomic and molecular implantations in crystalline silicon to set the physics basis for the general damage generation mechanisms by ion implantation.
  • The development of an efficient atomistic model for damage generation through ion implantation that provides a realistic damage description, and its implementation in simulator based on the binary collision approximation in order to correctly simulate monatomic and molecular implantations with an affordable computer cost for industrial applications.
  • The understanding of the role of existing defects, surfaces and interfaces on the generation and stability of damage.
  • The understanding of the energetic and structural features of B atoms in amorphous silicon and their role in the doping of this material, and the characterization and quantification of the atomistic diffusion in amorphous silicon during annealing treatments.

During my PhD studies I performed two stays abroad. The first one was with Prof. W. Windl (Ohio State University, USA) for studying the boron dopind of amorphous silicon with ab initio simulations. The second one was with Prof. L. Colombo (University of Cagliary, Italy) for studying the atomic rearrangement mechanisms driving the self diffusion in amorphous silicon during annealing.

Workshop on Reconfigurable Computation and Applications 2014

JCRA The Workshop on Reconfigurable Computation and Applications (Jornadas de Computación Reconfigurable y Aplicaciones, JCRA 2014) is an annual meeting point of the Spanish and Latin American research groups to discuss the latest advances, research and academic experiences in the field of reconfigurable computing, technologies and applications of programmable logic devices.

Variables Network

Variables VARIABLES thematic network is participated by most of the Spanish research groups whose activities include the topic of micro/nanoelectronic variability, covering in this way all the abstraction levels of the design and fabrication process. The network aims to provide a communication forum for the different groups, giving advantage to the exchange of experiences between areas and mobility of young and senior researchers, to promote joint research activities.
