The anomalous doping behavior of Si regrown from In solution was studied by (1) Schottky barrier evaluation of conductivity type, (2) electron microprobe analysis for phosphorus, and (3) channeling effect measurements for interstitial In. The latter showed In present at ∼ 1019 cm−3, but not occupying a regular substitutional or interstitial position. A correlation was found in the first two measurements between phosphorus contamination and n‐type conductivity. When the In was contacted only by quartz freshly etched in HF, the n‐type behavior and phosphorus contamination disappeared. The anomalous doping behavior is most likely due to phosphorus inpurity picked up by the In.
