Abstract

Microscopic aspects of the behavior of hydrogen in amorphous silicon are reviewed in the context of density functional electronic structure calculations. The relative energetics of various hydrogen complexes are presented. Also, a hydrogen density of states picture is used to describe hydrogen-related phenomena including diffusion and defect formation. A microscopic theory for hydrogen-related metastability will be discussed in detail.
