Abstract: The composition of a-Si1 - xCx:H films, deposited by magnetron sputtering, was measured by AES (Auger Electron Spectroscopy), RBS (Rutherford Backscattering Spectrometry) using both, protons and α-particles, ERDA (Elastic Recoil Detection Analysis) and FTIR spectroscopy. The results obtained by all three methods show agreement in CC/CSi ratio within the experimental error. However, the AES somewhat underestimates the silicon concentrations, which is discussed as a consequence of chemical bonding and matrix effects. The hydrogen concentrations obtained by ERDA are typically about 30% higher than those estimated by FTIR, possibly due to the presence of non-bonded hydrogen in the film. © 1999 Elsevier Science B.V.
