ABSTRACT
Charge carrier decay processes in hydrogenated amorphous silicon after extended illumination are studied by the time-resolved microwave conductivity method. It is shown that creation of metastable defects depends on illumination time. Two different defects can be distinguished: one which decreases the charge carrier lifetime in the bulk, whereas the other one increases the subband gap absorption at the surface.
