Combined Molecular Dynamics and Kinetic Monte Carlo simulations are used in hierarchical models to gain physical understanding for process optimization in advanced devices. Thermal budget for the removal of defects in advanced millisecond anneals is evaluated. Alternatives to overcome the imperfect regrowth of narrow Si structures are proposed. The compromise between implant and anneal parameters for doping of FinFETs are presented, considering lateral diffusion and activation.
