In the present work, we report on the effects of the implantation temperature on the formation of bubbles and extended defects in Ne+-implanted Si(001) substrates. The implantations were performed at 50 keV to a fluence of 5x1016 cm-2, for distinct implantation temperatures within the 250°C≤Ti≤800°C interval. The samples are investigated using a combination of cross-sectional and plan-view Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) observations and Grazing Incidence Small-Angle X-ray Scattering (GISAXS)measurements. In comparison with similar He implants, we demonstrate that the Ne implants can lead to the formation of a much denser bubble system.
