In this paper, the strained Si$_{0.9}$Ge$_{0.1}$ epitaxial layers grown by a reduced pressure chemical vapor deposition (RPCVD) on Si (100) were characterized by Rutherford backscattering spectrometery (RBS) for the fabrication of an SiGe heterojunction bipolar transistor(HBT). RBS spectra of the ${Si}_0.9{Ge}_0.1$epitaxial layers grown on the Si substrates which were implanted with the phosphorus (P) ion and annealed at a temperature between $850^{\circ}C$ - $1000^{\circ}C$ for 30min were analyzed to investigate the post thermal annealing effect on the grown${Si}_0.9{Ge}_0.1$epitaxial layer quality. Although a damage of the substrates by P ion-implantation might be cause of the increase of RBS yield ratios, but any defects such as dislocation or stacking fault in the grown ${Si}_0.9{Ge}_0.1$ epitaxial layer were not found in transmission electron microscope (TEM) photographs. The post high temperature rapid thermal annealing (RTA) effects on the crystalline quality of the ${Si}_0.9{Ge}_0.1$ epitaxial layers were also analyzed by RBS. The changes in the RBS yield ratios were negligible for RTA a temperature between $900^{\circ}C$ - $1000^{\circ}C$for 20 sec, or $950^{\circ}C$for 20 sec - 60 sec. A SiGe HBT array shows a good Gummel characteristics with post RTA at $950^{\circ}C$ for 20 sec.sec.sec.
