Diborane, B2H6, is a colourless, poisonous, flammable, high-pressure gas mixture.

In the semiconductor industry, diborane is used:

  • as a p-type dopant, for epitaxial silicon, (usually ppm mixtures with hydrogen balance gas)
  • for doping selected regions of a silicon wafer using deposition/diffusion techniques (usually high ppm mixtures with nitrogen)
  • for doping polycrystalline silicon for interconnects or certain capacitors and
  • for forming borophosphosilicate glasses (usually percentage mixtures with silane).
