Paper Abstract

High quality amorphous silicon carbon (a-SiC:H) films with the wide bandgap of 2.4 eV are developed by using rf glow discharge deposition from highly hydrogen diluted C2H4 and SiH4. It has been shown that multi-layer photo-diodes using a-Si:H and a-SiC:H tend to have higher gain than 10, and special constructions of three multi-layers presented switching phenomena like a thyrister switch.
