Abstract

The nickel metal-induced-lateral-crystallized silicon films are studied in detail. Laterally grown crystalline grains can be as large as 17 μm, though the grains consist of small misorientated sub-grains and some sub-grains are divided further into overlapping upper and lower sub-grains. The nickel-induced crystallization starts with thin needle-like crystallites, which advance along the 〈111〉 directions within the film plane. These thin needle-like crystallites grow by successive jumps with a very fast growth rate. The fast growth rate and the small probability that the 〈111〉 growth directions are within the film plane result in the laterally grown large grains.
