The characteristics of dopant activation by sequential lateral solidification in poly-Si films is investigated using sheet resistance measurement and Raman measurement. Sheet resistance of n+ and p+ doped poly-Si films decreases exponentially as the laser energy increases. The minimum sheet resistance of n+ doped poly-Si films is 150 Ω/□ which is near to that of rapid thermal annealing (RTA) while the minimum sheet resistance of p+ doped poly-Si films is 180 Ω/□ which is less than a half to that of RTA. The sheet resistance of n+ and p+ doped poly-Si increases as the laser energy increases when the laser energy is above 573 mJ/cm2 at which the nucleation occurs. Raman signal of n+ doped poly-Si films shows single peak at 515 cm-1 with all laser energy and has maximum intensity at 566 mJ/cm2 laser energy. Raman signal of p+ doped poly-Si films shows single peak below 413 mJ/cm2 laser energy and double peak above 444 mJ/cm2 laser energy where the fully melting of p+ doped poly-Si film occurs.
