Abstract: Substrates with ZnO (or ITO) conductive layers were covered by thin film of a-Si:H deposited by PECVD technique. Under a turbo-molecular vacuum (10-4 Pa) the reactive laser ablation (RLA) was used to cover this a-Si:H thin film by germanium NPs. The RLA was performed using focused excimer ArF laser beam (193 nm, 100 mJ/pulse) under SiH4 background atmosphere (0.5 Pa). As a target the elemental germanium was used. Reaction between ablated Ge and silane led to formation of Ge NPs covered by thin SiGe layer. Then the deposited NPs were covered and stabilized by a-Si:H layer by PECVD. Those two deposition processes was alternated and applied a few times. The Si:H thin films with integrated Ge NPs were characterized by microscopic, spectroscopic and diffraction techniques. I-V characteristics of final diode structures without and under illumination were measured as well as their electroluminescence behaviour.
