Effect of C on the thermal stability of an atomic layer of Si on Ge(1 0 0) was investigated4 during heat treatment between 500 and 700°C. Because of the decrease of the Si coverage and the appearance of Ge hydride are observed after heat treatment at 500-700°C, Si atoms deposited on Ge(1 0 0) tend to diffuse into the Ge layer. It is shown that an atomic layer of C suppresses the Si diffusion into Ge layer and a C containing Si atomic layer on Ge(100) is stable up to 600°C.
