silicidation  an anneal (sintering) process resulting in the formation of metal-Si alloy (silicide) to act as a contact; e.g. Ti deposited on Si forms TiSi2 as a result of silicidation.
silicide, silicides  alloys of silicon and metals; contact materials in silicon device manufacturing; e.g. TiSi2, CoSi2, NiSi; combine advantageous features of metal contacts (e.g significantly lower resistivity than poly-Si) and poly-Si contacts(e.g. no electromigration).
