Hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si : H) films are grown by plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition with a triode electrode configuration in which a SiH4 H2 glow-discharge plasma is confined spatially away from the substrate. By this method, the light-induced degradation of solar cell efficiency is reduced substantially. The stabilized efficiencies of 9.6% and 11.9% are obtained for a-Si : H single-junction and micromorph tandem solar cells, respectively.
