The development of μc-Si:H technology and the introduction of intrinsic μc-Si:H as photovotaically active material is retraced. Special emphasis is laid on the use of very high frequency glow discharge as a particularly propitious deposition method for μc-Si:H. Thereby, the use of a gas purifier to reduce oxygen content and obtain intrinsic layers with ‘midgap’ character is described....
