The synthesis of a buried oxide layer in multilayer Si/Ge/Si structures by the implantation of high doses of 200 keV O+ ions is studied by Rutherford backscattering analysis. The presence of Ge is found to have a minimal effect upon the mass transport of excess oxygen and interstitial silicon. Infrared transmission spectroscopy and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy confirm that the oxygen atoms bond preferentially to silicon forming silicon dioxide and SiOx, where x<2, with no evidence for Ge—O bonding
