The doping efficiency in amorphous silicon and germanium

Research output: Contribution to journalLetterpeer-review

33 Scopus citations


The incorporation probability and the doping efficiency of phosphorus, arsenic and boron in glow-discharge-deposited hydrogenated amorphous silicon and germanium have been measured. All dopant-host pairs show the same doping efficiency as a function of the dopant concentration in the deposition plasma, but exhibit considerable scatter as a function of the solid-phase concentration. These results are discussed in the context of existing doping models.
