ABSTRACT
In this letter we investigate the difference between the bond breaking and the charge trapping model of the light-induced effect in amorphous hydrogenated silicon (a-Si:H). We also report the partial recovery from the light-induced effect in p-i-n solar cells by infrared illumination in the presence of an electric field.
