Point contact openings in surface passivated macroporous silicon layers
In this paper we demonstrate the preparation of point contact openings in surface passivated macroporous silicon layers. In our experiments we control the etching parameters to vary the percentage of these non-passivated local openings from 0% to 1.6%. We investigate the impact of these local openings in the passivating layer on the effective carrier lifetime. These local openings reduce the measured effective carrier lifetime with increasing percentage of the non-passivated areas. We measure...[Show more]
