Carrier Recombination Activities and Structural Properties of Small-Angle Boundaries in Multicrystalline Silicon

Abstract:

Article Preview

The carrier recombination activities of small angle (SA) grain boundaries (GBs) in multicrystalline Si (mc-Si) were systematically investigated by electron-beam-induced current (EBIC). At 300 K, general SA-GBs with tilt angle from 0° to 10° showed weak EBIC contrast (0- 10%) with the maximum appeared at 2°. At low temperature (100 K), all the SA-GBs showed strong EBIC contrast despite the tilt angle. Possible explanations for the variation of the EBIC contrast were discussed in terms of boundary dislocations.
