    We have studied silicon-on-insulator (SOI) materials with two different ion beam analysis methods. The SOI samples were implanted with boron and hydrogen ions. After implantation the wafers were annealed, and some of them were bonded to thermally oxidized silicon wafers. The damage in silicon single crystal due to ion implantations has been studied by Rutherford Backscattering in the channeling mode (RBS/C). The content of the ion-implanted hydrogen has been studied by elastic recoil detection analysis (ERDA) method. The strength of the implanted region after thermal annealings were measured with the crack opening method. The boron implantation before hydrogen implantation resulted to shallower implantation depth and lower splitting temperature than in samples implanted with hydrogen only. The boron implantation after hydrogen implantation did not influence the splitting temperature and RBS spectra showed that B implantation drove the H deeper to the sample.
