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