Photoconductivity spectroscopy in hydrogenated microcrystalline silicon thin films
MetadataShow full item record
Steady-state photoconductivity and sub-bandgap absorption measurements by the dual-beam photoconductivity (DBF) method were carried out on undoped hydrogenated microcrystalline silicon thin films prepared by VHF-PECVD and hot-wire chemical vapor deposition. The results are compared with those of the constant-photocurrent method (CPM) and photothermal deflection spectroscopy (PDS). It is found that DBP, CPM, and PDS provide complementary data on the optoelectronic processes in microcrystalline silicon.
