Abstract

The rate and direction of regrowth of amorphous layers, created by self-implantation, in silicon-on-sapphire (SOS) have been studied using time resolved reflectivity (TRR) experiments performed simultaneously at two wavelengths. Regrowth of an amorphous layer towards the surface was observed in specimens implanted with 3 multiplied by (times) 10**1**5Si** plus /cm**2 at 50keV and regrowth of a buried amorphous layer, from a surface seed towards the sapphire, was observed in specimens implanted with 1 multiplied by (times) 10**1**5Si** plus /cm**2 at 175keV. Rapid isothermal heating to regrow the layers was performed in an electron beam annealing system. The combination of 514. 5nm and 632. 8nm wavelengths was found to be particularly useful for TRR studies since the high absorption in amorphous silicon, at the shorter wavelength, means that the TRR trace is not complicated by reflection from the silicon-sapphire interface until regrowth is nearly complete.
