Transient annealing effects on the grain size, structure and morphology of B and As implanted films of polycrystalline silicon were determined by transmission electron microscopy. Originally, grains had a bimodal distribution of smaller equiaxed grains and larger columnar grains. The growth of both types of grains was described with a modified model for interfacial energy driven grain growth. Bend contours in annealed unimplanted films were not present in annealed ion implanted films due to formation of a cellular network structure in the grains.
