Abstract

A simple lateral grain growth of polysilicon employing single excimer laser irradiation is proposed. In order to increase the size of silicon grain and to control the location of the large lateral grain, the oxide trench is employed under the amorphous silicon film in the proposed method. The proposed oxide trench, which is shaped like a triangle or a polygon with an acute angle, induces temperature gradient on the molten silicon film during the solidification. It was verified by SEM that about 2 μm-long silicon grains are successfully achieved near the oxide trench edge and the locations of lateral grains are controlled by the angular points of the diagram.
