ABSTRACT
The continuous deposition of polycrystalline silicon film on quartz fiber by local thermal chemical deposition was investigated. High-speed deposition owing to high temperature and locality was examined using fixed and moving substrates. We confirmed the high-speed deposition of polycrystalline silicon and achieved a maximum speed of over 1 μm/s. Furthermore, we succeeded in a continuous deposition of polycrystalline thin silicon with a thickness of 50–100 nm on a quartz fiber with low roughness and low impurity content. Thin film transistor with a mobility more than 3.7 cm2/V s was achieved by using this film.
