    Abstract

    Nanocrystalline FeSi2 (NC-FeSi2) thin films were grown on Si(111) substrates by facing-targets DC sputtering at room temperature using FeSi2 targets. The NC-FeSi2 films showed hopping conduction behavior, which was confirmed by the temperature dependence of the electric conductivity. n-Type NC-FeSi2/p-type Si and n-type NC-FeSi2/i-Si/p-type Si heterojunctions were prepared to be employed as photovoltaics. For the p-i-n heterojunctions, i-Si thin layer reduced the leakage current and improved photovoltaic properties as compared to the p-n heterojunctions. This improvement might be due to the i-Si layer that acts as a leakage blocking layer rather than a light absorption layer.
