Abstract

The contribution deals with electronic properties of thin oxide/amorphous hydrogenated silicon (a-Si:H) measured by capacitance-voltage (C-V) and charge version of deep level transient spectroscopy (Q-DLTS). The interest was focused on the studies of the interface properties of very thin dielectrics formed by dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) or natively on the a-Si:H layer. These properties were compared with those of oxide layers prepared by chemical oxidation in HNO3. The DBD was used for the preparation of a very thin SiO2 layer on a-Si:H for the first time to our knowledge. Preliminary electrical measurements confirmed that a very low interface states density was detected in the case of the native oxide/a-Si:H and DBD oxide/a-Si:H.
