ABSTRACT
Electrical conductivity measurements on a-Ge:H/a-Si:H superlattices parallel and perpendicular to the layers are explained by a simple quantum well model which yields effective electron masses 0.4m0 for a-Ge:H and 0.3m0 for a-Si:H. Space-charge-limited currents observed at high fields are used to determine the density of deep gap states in the a-Ge:H layers.
