Abstract

The results of a study of the kinetics of the light-induced annealing of defects in hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) at the temperature of 125°C are presented. The rate of removal of the metastable defects and the final steady-state defect density both increase with light intensity. The functional dependence of the light-induced annealing term on the light intensity, or carrier generation rate G, is proportional to G0.66−0.84, and thus is proportional to the density of the photo-generated carriers.
