Paper Abstract

Several time-resolved experimental techniques have been applied to a-Si:H based thin films and diodes to determine carrier ranges, junction field profiles and charge storaae times. The results on p-i-n type diodes are compared to a theoretical model of a-Si:H so-lar cells. Electrochemical surface treatment of Schottky-barrier type devices indicates that improved carrier transport is obtained for interfaces from which oxide related defects are removed. For the case of thin a-SiC:H alloy films it is shown that deep trapping gives rise to significant space charge build-up which can be used for charge storage applications.
