The metal-induced low-temperature crystallization (MILC) of amorphous Si1-xGex on SiO2 was investigated. It was found that the growth velocity of MILC-Si1-xGex enhanced by 80% by increasing Ge fraction from 0% to 20% achieved poly-Si0.8Ge0.2 with large grains. Very sharp needle-like crystal regions were also obtained by optimizing the growth conditions.
