The structure and composition of nitrogen-implanted silicon (to a low dose of 2 × 1017 cm-2) were studied. The implantation produced an amorphized silicon layer containing nitrogen, followed by a crystalline silicon layer with a high density of {113} defects and faulted loops on {111} planes. Rapid thermal annealing (heat pulse) at 900 and 1000°C for 20s removed the metastable {113} defects, increased the density of {111} defects and resulted in a redistribution of nitrogen in the polycrystalline silicon formed from the amorphous silicon layers.
