Paper Abstract

B-doped hydrogenated amorphous silicon-carbon [a-Si C:H(B)] film is an important photovoltaic material owing to its wide band gap. During the past years it has attracted much attention and has been used in some devices such as solar cells. At present, however, there have been few reports of detailed results about the thermal stability of a-Si1-xCx:H(B) films. Therefore, the determination of boron depth profiles in these films after thermal annealing and related properties are of interest. In this report, the measurements of B depth profiles in p-layer of a-Si:H/a-Si1-xCx:H(B)/a-Si:H films after thermal annealing at various temperatures Ta were carried out by using B(p,(alpha) )8 Be resonant reaction at Ep equals 163 keV. The distribution shapes of boron concentration in these films and some characteristics are presented.
