Amorphous Silicon introduces the reader to this field by first discussing what is meant by the amorphous state. It details the way in which amorphous silicon is prepared, and the growth mechanism. The main structural, optical and electronic properties are then covered in detail, and there is a full chapter on the structural stability of the 4/5(1).

Amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) is a very attractive material for large-area thin-film electronics, namely as thin-film transistors for flat panel displays, as color sensors, or as the absorbing layer for solar cells. The main advantages of this material are the low deposition temperature that offers the use of glass and flexible substrates, the potential for tuning the energy bandgap (– eV. P. Migliorato, in Encyclopedia of Materials: Science and Technology, Thin-film transistors (TFTs), based on hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si) (Berkel , Suzuki ), is the enabling technology for the active matrix liquid crystal display (AMLCD), commonplace in portable computers and increasingly being employed in the pioneering work by Brody .

Advances in Microcrystalline and Nanocrystalline Semiconductors, v. Hydrogenated amorphous silicon, a-Si:H, has been the focus point of many research papers in the last twenty years. Apart from solar cells, most studies on devices focus on thin-film transistors, TFTs. The surface morphology of MHz PECVD SiN{sub x} films is . Amorphous semiconductors are promising electronic materials for a wide range of applications such as solar cells, thin-film transistors, light sensors, optical memory devices, vidicons, electrophotographic applications, x-ray image sensors, europium-doped optical-fibre amplifications etc., particularly, hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si: H) for solar cells, thin Cited by: 4. ^^^^^ I think you want to look at the silicon article rather than the amorphous silicon article. There is a pretty robust applications section right now. , 5 March (UTC) how does the conductivity of amorphous silicon differ from crystalline silicon, and what is the mechanism by which charge carriers is produced.
