The role of di-boron diffusion in evolution of B diffusion profiles has been investigated. We find that boron pair (B-s-B-i) diffusion can become as important as boron-interstitial pair (B-s-Si-i) diffusion when both boron concentration and annealing temperature are very high, leading to concentration-dependent B diffusion. Our simulated B diffusion profiles with dramatic shouldering are in excellent agreement with experimental ones reported by Schroer [Appl. Phys. Lett. 74, 3996 (1999)] for high-temperature (approximate to 1200 degrees C) postimplantion annealing of ultralow-energy (approximate to500 eV) implanted high-concentration (>10(19) cm(-3)) boron in silicon.
