Abstract: The structure and energetics of the carbon-rich c(4×4) surface reconstruction on Si(0 0 1) is studied theoretically. These combined analyses demonstrate that for five or six carbon atoms per c(4×4) unit cell, the configuration involving carbon atoms in second nearest-neighbor positions in subsurface sites is more stable than the first nearest-neighbor configuration, involving a C-C dimer and a missing Si dimer. This SiC-like configuration could account for the formation of 3C-SiC precipitates generally observed during the growth of Si-C alloys for high C concentrations (>3%) and at high temperatures (>650°C).
