Abstract

We have investigated the influence of Ar+ ion beam irradiation on the solid-phase crystallization (SPC) of amorphous Si on SiO2. The results indicated that the annealing temperature required to begin the SPC drastically decreased by the utilization of Ar+ irradiation, i.e., 400°C for the samples with irradiation and 700°C for the samples without irradiation. In addition, both (111) and (220) Si peaks were observed in the XRD spectra for the samples annealed with Ar+ irradiation. In this way, new method of SPC at low temperature has been established.
