We observe hydrogen platelet buildup in single-crystalline silicon caused by hydrogen-plasma processing. The platelets are aligned along a layer of lattice defects formed in silicon before the plasma processing. The buried-defect layer is formed by either silicon-into-silicon or argon-into-silicon implantation. We discuss the platelet nucleation, growth, and merge phenomena and discuss applicability of the plasma hydrogenation to silicon-on-insulator (SOI) wafer fabrication by layer transfer.
