Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) of hydrogenated amorphous silicon thin films is an important process for thin-film solar cells and thin-film transistors. In this work, the mechanisms for the reaction of hydrogen atoms with SiHx radicals (x = 1–3) and related unimolecular decomposition processes are investigated. The rate constants for the forward and unimolecular reactions are predicted by solving the master equation covering the P,T-conditions commonly used in industrial CVD processes.
