The epitaxial regrowth of ion-implanted amorphous layers on <100> Si with partly compensated doping profiles of 11B, 75As, and 31P was studied. Single implants of these impurities are found to increase the regrowth rate at 475 and 500°C. The compensated layers with equal concentrations of 11B and 31P or 11B and 75As show a strong decrease of the regrowth whereas for the layers with overlapping 75As and 31P profiles no compensation has been found.
