Topography and lattice parameter of Si:Ge bulk crystals

X-ray topographic and chemical etching examination of Si:Ge single crystals containing 1.2 at% and 3.0 at% Ge, together with precise lattice parameter measurements, was performed. Diffraction contrasts in the form of concentric `quasi-circles' (striations), probably due to the non-uniform distribution of Ge atoms, were observed in projection topographs. The etching patterns revealed bands corresponding to striations and dislocations as etch pits. The central `core' crystal region (striation-free) exhibited a crystal lattice strongly disturbed by microdefects, as was concluded from the section topography analysis. The lattice parameter measurements have shown the non-uniformity of the distribution of Ge atoms across the samples.
