Recombination and trapping in multicrystalline silicon
Minority carrier recombination and trapping frequently coexist in multicrystalline silicon (mc-Si), with the latter effect obscuring both transient and steady-state measurements of the photoconductance. In this paper, the injection dependence of the measured lifetime is studied to gain insight into these physical mechanisms. A theoretical model for minority carrier trapping is shown to explain the anomalous dependence of the apparent lifetime with injection level and allow the evaluation of the...[Show more]
