Abstract : The patent relates to a solid body of a first conductivity type which has a passivating oxide layer formed on one of its surfaces. A mask having an opening therein is provided over the layer. The opening is exposed to ion radiation so as to implant ions in the oxide layer. The solid body is heated, thereby driving ion dopants from the oxide layer into the body and providing a region therein having a conductivity opposite the first conductivity type.
