1. A method of fabricating a MOSFET device, comprising the sequential steps of:

  • providing a substrate, wherein a gate is on the substrate;

    forming an oxide layer on the substrate, and implanting the substrate with first ions;

    forming a first depositing layer;

    etching the first depositing layer to form a first spacer, and implanting the substrate with second ions;

    forming a second depositing layer;

    etching the second depositing layer to form a second spacer alongside the first spacer;

    etching the oxide layer to expose part of the side walls of the gate; and

    forming a metal silicide layer by a self-aligned process by depositing a metal layer so that the metal layer contacts said exposed part of the sidewall of the gate.
