Recombination Activity of Metal-related and Boron-oxygen Defects in Crystalline Silicon

Sun, Chang


This thesis aims to improve the understanding of the recombination activity of some metal-related defects and the boron-oxygen (BO) defect in crystalline silicon. First, the recombination parameters of the aluminium-oxygen (Al-O) complex are reassessed by applying lifetime spectroscopy on several n- and p-type Al-contaminated samples. The uncertainty ranges of the recombination parameters have been tightened significantly by simultaneously fitting the...[Show more]
