The redistribution of the p-type dopant Be during the post-growth rapid thermal annealing in InGaAs layers grown by gas source molecular beam epitaxy has been studied using secondary ion mass spectrometry technique. The experimental structures consisted of a 2000 Å Be-doped () layer sandwiched between 5000 Åundoped layers. To explain the observed depth profiles, obtained for annealing cycles with time durations of 10 to 240 s and temperatures in the range of 700-, two models of kick-out mechanism, with neutral and singly positively ionized Be interstitial species, have been considered.
