A repetitively Q-switched Nd: YAG laser can 'write' high-quality monocrystalline patterns in ion-implanted amorphous silicon layers. Ion channelling, optical and transmission electron microscopy, electrical resistivity and capacitance transients measurements were utilized to characterize laser-irradiated silicon samples. The results indicate that annealing with nanosecond pulses occurs via melting and epitaxial regrowth of the surface layer.
