The nanostructure of hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) is studied by means of doppler broadening positron annihilation spectroscopy (DB-PAS) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. The evolution of open volume deficiencies is monitored during annealing, demonstrating that small vacancies and other small vacancy clusters that...

Since the first report on the fabrication of hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) in 1965, this material has found many applications, for instance in the fabrication of solar cells, sensors and transistors. An especially notable example in the context of this thesis is thin-film silicon solar cells, which have attracted a lot of attention....

Thin oxide interlayers are commonly added to the back reflector of thin-film silicon solar cells to increase their current. To gain more insight in the enhancement mechanism, we tested different back reflector designs consisting of aluminium-doped zinc oxide (ZnO:Al) and/or hydrogenated silicon oxide (SiOx:H) interlayers with different metals ...
