Anomalous impurity redistribution after a laser irradiation process in group-IV elements has been reported in numerous papers. In this Letter, we correlate this still unexplained behavior with the peculiar bonding character of the liquid state of group-IV semiconductors. Analyzing the B-Si system in a wide range of experimental conditions we demonstrate(More)
The analysis results of flow induced stress field in a Francis turbine runner blade is presented. The geometrical model was reduced to one blade, due to the periodical symmetry of the runner. The pressure field obtained from computational fluid dynamics (CFD) was applied as a mechanical load on the blade surface in the structural finite element analysis(More)
Pulsed Laser Thermal Annealing (LTA) of Silicon in the nanosecond regime has attracted a considerable attention regarding the activation process for nanodevices. Pulsed LTA with an Excimer laser is of a particular interest for the activation of dopants in shallow implanted layers such as the backside junction formation for 3D-integrated devices including(More)
