Trap-controlled dispersive transport and exponential band tails in amorphous silicon

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

51 Scopus citations


The theory of trap-controlled dispersive transport based on exponential band-tail traps is extended to include the saturation of trap occupancy at high excitation levels. The absence of saturation effects in the transient photocurrent experiment of Hvam and Brodsky is shown to contradict the band-tail hypothesis of this model.
