Dopant Configurations in a-Se and a-Si

  • J. Robertson


Impurity configurations in a-Se and a-Si are discussed in terms of the ionicity of the impurity-host bond and their quantal coordinates defined in terms of the Pauli-force model pseudopotentials. Self -compensation and auto-compensation in a-Si is also discussed.
