Paper Abstract

In order to enhance the deposited area and to improve the uniformity of hydrogenated amor phous silicon (a-Si:H) films, obtained from photodissociation of silane molecules by CO2 laser radiation, two new different experimental approaches are investigated. One of these utilizes a high power (≈ 1 KW) CW CO2 laser with uniform intensity distribution in a rectangular beam cross section; the other consists in a continuous scanning, along a horizontal plane parallel to the substrate, of a low power (≈ 100 W) gaussian laser beam. Preliminary results about p and n doping of the photodeposited material by boron and pho-sphorous ion implantation proved its high doping efficiency and its structural similarity to the chemical vapor deposition produced material.
