Field effect in co-deposited quantum confined a/nc-Si:H, The
When considering new materials for optoelectronic applications, the transport of charge carriers, in the dark and under illumination, in the material is of utmost importance. In this dissertation, the transport of charge carriers in co-deposited mixed phase amorphous/nanocrystalline silicon (a/nc-Si:H), a nano-composite consisting of quantum confined silicon quantum dots (SiQDs) embedded in an amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) matrix, is examined using the field effect. A/nc-Si:H is grown by concurrently embedding crystalline silicon nanoparticles, grown in a flow-through plasma reactor, into an amorphous ...
