Abstract:

Solar cells have been made from hydrogenated amorphous silicon a-SiH films. The films including Si nanoparticles by 3 in the volume fraction have been found to possess good properties. In order to find the method to control this volume fraction, the motion of Si nanoparticles in the rarefied flow of H2 and SiH4 is examined for a CVD chemical vapor depositiion reactor by use of the DSMC method.
