Overview

Applications requiring large-area semiconductor coverage rely increasingly on amorphous and heterogeneous silicon materials because they can be deposited at low cost on a variety of substrates. This volume, first published in 1999, covers the range from fundamental research to the device applications of these materials. A special session on medium-range order is featured, and confirms the belief that ordering correlates with the electronic quality of a-Si:H films. Important experimental observations on metastable effects in a-Si:H are also reported, as are devices and processing strategies. Topics include: growth and properties; high-rate deposition; recrystallization, amorphization and porous silicon; ordering and hydrogen; metastability; defects, band tails and transport; heterogeneous materials and devices; thin-film transistors and displays; solar cells; and detectors, imagers and other devices.

Booknews
From the April 1999 symposium, 130-plus contributions range in coverage from fundamental research on materials to their many device applications. Arrangement of papers is in sections on growth and properties; high-rate deposition; recrystallization; amorphization and porous silicon; ordering and hydrogen; metastability; defects, band tails and transport; heterogeneous materials and devices; thin-film transistors and displays; solar cells; and detectors, imagers, and other devices. The symposium featured a special session on medium- range order in order to explore how ordering correlates with the electronic quality of a-Si:H films. Annotation c.
