Oxygen ion bombardment for SIMS analysis produces an altered layer at the surface of a silicon sample. Transmission electron microscopy has been used to show that the layer is amorphous and typically 20 nm deep for normal incidence oxygen ions at 4.5 keV. Compositional variation within the layer is shown by the appearance of a Fresnel fringe at approximately two thirds of the depth but the interface with the crystalline silicon substrate is shown to be atomically sharp. A pile-up of As at the altered layer was found when profiling through a heavily As doped layer.
