ABSTRACT
Studies the influence of different transparent conducting oxides (TCO) on the transverse photoelectrical properties of one-dimensional position sensitive detectors based on p-i-n amorphous silicon structures. Poor quality of the p layer revealed by secondary ion mass spectroscopy measurements; How indium tin oxide is less appropriate for a front TCO layer.
