We report on the fabrication and characterization of hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) films and n-i-p photodiodes on glass and PEN plastic substrates using low-temperature (150°C) plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition. Process conditions were optimized for the i-a-Si:H material which had a band gap of ∼1.73 eV and low density of states (of the order 10 15 cm-3). Diodes with 0.5 μm i-layer demonstrate quantum efficiency ∼70%. The reverse dark current of the diodes on glass and PEN plastic substrate is ∼10-11 and below 10-10 A/cm2, respectively. We discuss the difference in electrical characteristics of n-i-p diodes on glass and PEN in terms of bulk- and interface-state generation currents.
