assbauer spectra of 12%e implanted into Si have been studied earlier /I/. The spectra were composed of two lines which were interpreted as coming from Te in two different Lattice sites. The intensities of the two lines were practically equal. The line with positive isomer shift was attributed to Te situated in a substitutional site and the other line with negative isomershift toan interstitial Te. We have performed laser annealing on a 29~i?eg source by a Q-switched ruby-laser with a pulse

The line with a negative isomer shift had increased up to about 75 X and the other one had decreased simultaneously to about 25 X. After increasing the laser power density a new Mgssbauer line appeared and the lines were broadened. Channeling measurements by Foti et al. /2/ showed that the substitutional fraction had increased 2 to about 80 % after laser annealing at 2.5 J/cm . Combining this with our results, the substitutional site should be attributed to the line with the negative isomer shift -2.5kC.2 mm/s, which is in contradiction with the earlier interpretation of the two lines /I/. The new ~(6s~bauer line might be explained by Te migrating to the surface after high power irradiation 121. References /I/ Hafemeister, D.W. and de Waard, H. Phys. Rev. (1973) 3014.
