Electrical Conductivity in Anisotropic Porous Silicon Films
Abstract:The electrical transport in free standing porous silicon films formed from heavily boron-doped (110) Si wafers are investigated. The conductivity and photoconductivity of the films are shown to be significantly larger along the  in-plane crystallographic direction than that along the one. The conductivity anisotropy decreases with increasing temperature and frequency of the applied voltage. The experimental results are explained by a model, which takes into account potential barriers between anisotropic Si nanocrystals assembling PS films.
