NMR INVESTIGATIONS OF HYDROGENATED AMORPHOUS SILICONJ.A. Reimer
I.B.M. Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, New York 10598, U.S.A.
A review is presented of the N.M.R. (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) studies to date of hydrogenated amorphous silicon-hydrogen films. Structural features of proton N.M.R. lineshapes, dynamics of hydrogen containing defect sites, and the promise of quantitative determinations of local silicon-hydrogen bonding environments are discussed in detail. Finally, some comments are given on future directions for N.M.R. studies of hydrogenated thin films.
