Abstract

In this paper we focus our attention on compensated materials with μ-doping concentration in order to obtain a stable intrinsic layer with initial high photoconductivity suitable for p-i-n solar cells. Films were grown from a mixture of undiluted silane, hydrogen diluted phosphine and hydrogen diluted diborane. Values of dark conductivity around 10-11 Ω-1cm-1 and photosensitivity ratio under AM 1.5 of 6 orders of magnitude have been obtained for phosphine/diborane ratio around 102. The difference between the two dopant concentrations is in agreement with the difference in doping efficiency of the two gases found in the characterization of single μ-doped films. We compared the degradation behavior of compensated and intrinsic materials with the same initial dark and light conductivity. After about 20 h the photoconductivity of the compensated and the intrinsic material decreased of 33% and 70%, respectively. The space of investigable deposition parameters has been limited by the stress induced by the simultaneous presence of phosphine and diborane which leads to a macroscopic, periodic and regular damage of the film
