Excimer laser KrF (248 nm) annealing at 93 mj/cm2 and 175 mJ/cm2 has been found to recrystallize amorphous silicon on (100)Si. The major impurities introduced by excimer laser annealing are carbon, while surface roughness remains as a major problem. Channel mobilities measured on MOSFETs processed on epitaxially regrown silicon were 98-115 cm2/v.s. Leakage currents between recrystallized silicon regions were 1-2 uA/cm2.
