Notes: This paper resolved a lengthy controversy over the mechanisms by which fluorine stabilises boron implantation doping in silicon. As a result industry has clear guidelines on how to optimize the technology - see for example S. Severi et al. in IEEE Electron Device Letters, 28, 198 (2007) and model it in TCAD tools - e.g. V. Moroz et al., Appl. Phys. Lett. 87, 051908 (2005). The paper has stimulated collaboration with 2 other university groups - Bath and Catania, Italy. This has led to two further joint APL publications and membership of the FP7 consortium proposal 'Euringen'. 10 citations (all positive) in the first year of publication.
