$SiO_2$ and polycrystalline Si layers were sequentially grown on (100) Si. NiSi was formed on this substrate from a 20nm Ni layer or a 20nm Ni/5nm Ti bilayer by rapid thermal annealing (RTA) at $300~500^{\circ}C$ to compare thermal stability. In addition, MOS capacitors were fabricated by depositing a 20nm Ni layer on the Poly-Si/$SiO_2$substrate, RTA at $400^{\circ}C$ to form NiSi, $BF_2$ or As implantation and finally drive- in annealing at $500~800^{\circ}C$ to evaluate electrical characteristics. When annealed at $400^{\circ}C$, NiSi made from both a Ni monolayer and a Ni/Ti bilayer showed excellent thermal stability. But NiSi made from a Ni/Ti bilayer was thermally unstable at $500^{\circ}C$. This was attributed to the formation of insignificantly small amount of NiSi due to suppressed Ni diffusion through the Ti layer. PMOS and NMOS capacitors made by using a Ni monolayer and the SADS(silicide as a dopant source) method showed good C-V characteristics, when drive-in annealed at $500^{\circ}C$ for 20sec., and$ 600^{\circ}C$ for 80sec. respectively.
