A series of boron doped polycrystalline silicon were produced using step-by-step laser crystallization process from amorphous silicon. The influence of doping concentrations on laser-induced dehydrogenation and crystallization of amorphous silicon and on hydrogen bonding have been investigated employing Raman spectroscopy and hydrogen effusion measurements. From hydrogen effusion spectra the hydrogen chemical potential is determined as a function of hydrogen concentration, which can be related to the hydrogen density-of-states distribution. The results from hydrogen effusion are consistent with the results obtained from Raman spectroscopy.
