ABSTRACT
We describe and demonstrate a new method for determining the density of states of the doubly occupied D0/- level in amorphous hydrogenated silicon and its alloys. The total charge collected during an electron time-of-flight measurement is determined as a function of T. T determines the energy E from which electrons are emitted during the measurement. Variation of T (and E) probes the local density of states. We present results for hydrogenated amorphous silicon before and after light soaking, and for amorphous silicon-germanium (a-Si,Ge:H,F) alloys.
