Origins of carrier traps in p-type multicrystalline silicon

Cuevas, Andres; Macdonald, D


Carrier trapping effects in multicrystalline silicon wafers are investigated by measuring the dependence of their photoconductance on carrier injection level and by fitting a theoretical model to the data. The main information thus obtained is the density of trapping centres, which may be a useful indicator of the quality of the material. We have found that the trap density can vary significantly for different cast multicrystalline silicon ingots. Typically, the concentration of traps also...[Show more]
