Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Carrier transport and lateral electrical properties of nanocrystalline silicon layers containing silicon nanocrystals were studied. The charging of silicon nanocrystals and Coulamb blockade effect were discussed based on the results from direct current and alternating current conductivity measurements. The effect of size of silicon nanocrystals on capacitance-voltage characteristics was also studied.
