Flash lamp annealing was applied to the modification of thin amorphous Si layers on SiO2 and glass. Slow positron implantation spectroscopy was used for the characterisation of the microstructure before and after flash lamp annealing. Changes in the structure down to a depth of some micrometres below the surface observed with slow positron implantation spectroscopy will be presented and discussed.
