SINOPSIS

Spatially resolved optical emission spectroscopy is used to study the variation of atomic hydrogen emission (Hβ) and SiH* (A2Δ) in the interelectrode space of a parallel plate configuration, usually employed for the deposition of amorphous or microcrystalline silicon. Space integrated emission measurements are presented as a function of power consumed in the process, for pure silane discharges and for hydrogen diluted silane discharges. Atomic hydrogen intensity profiles are also compared with the respective profiles recorded in pure hydrogen plasmas. The origin of atomic hydrogen emission and the effect of silane related gas phase chemistry on the discharge characteristics is discussed
