Paper Abstract

We measure picosecond photoinduced absorption in a low defect sample of hydrogenated amorphous silicon. Our results indicate that both the imaginary and real parts of the complex index of refraction contribute to the observed decay of the induced transmittance. We present two methods for obtaining the undistorted decay of the induced absorption. We show that the decay of the induced absorption is significantly different at carrier densities of 5.9 x 1017 cm" and 2.4 x 1018 cm'. The lower carrier density decay suggests that the data are consistent with the model for dispersive transport in amorphous materials.
