Abstract

We demonstrated using a double paddle oscillator to measure subsurface defect formation at room temperatures caused by ion implantation. This sensor has a low amount of noise based because of its high quality factors in certain modes. The double paddle oscillator was bombarded with Ar ions under ultra-high vacuum conditions while it was oscillating. The resultant resonant frequency changes were discussed as a method to determine defect formation inside the bulk substrate.
