Abstract: Out-of-plane and primarily in-plane lattice strain distributions, along the two perpendicular crystallographic directions on the subsurface of a silicon layer with embedded FeSi2 nanoparticles, were analyzed and resolved as a function of the synchrotron X-ray beam energy by using omega:phi mappings of the (111) and (111) Bragg-surface diffraction peaks. the nanoparticles, synthesized by ion-beam-induced epitaxial crystallization of Fe+-implanted Si(001), were observed to have different orientations and morphologies (sphere-and plate-like nanoparticles) within the implanted/recrystallized region. the results show that the shape of the synthesized material singularly affects the surrounding Si lattice. the lattice strain distribution elucidated by the nonconventional X-ray Bragg-surface diffraction technique clearly exhibits an anisotropic effect, predominantly caused by plate-shaped nanoparticles. This type of refined detection reflects a key application of the method, which could be used to allow discrimination of strains in distorted semiconductor substrate layers.
