We report our KMC study on the effect of strain on B diffusion in silicon and relaxed SiGe layer by assuming a virtual strained structure with charged defect energy and diffusivity. The simulation results imply that boron diffusion is drastically retarded in a strained Si and relaxed SiGe when compared to a case with unstrained silicon. We also derived the distribution of physical stress along the heterojunction interface with varying the Ge implant for giving rise to a strain to the pure silicon.
