We have investigated films with the required wider bandgap and a low Fermi level density of states for use in solar cells, even with large concentrations of propane in the gas mixture. The hydrogen is predominantly bonded to silicon atoms despite the production of higher hydrocarbons and mixed species by the plasma. Boron-doped films incorporated into tandem p-i-n cells do improve their blue spectral response but have yet to be optimized. © 1980.
