Title: Amorphous silicon solar cell

Abstract: An amorphous silicon solar cell includes a substrate, a transparentelectrode formed on this substrate, a power-generating film formed on thistransparent electrode, and a back-side electrode formed on thispower-generating film. The power-generating film is formed by sequentiallystacking p-type/i-type/n-type hydrogenated amorphous silicon layers. Thedefect density of the i-type hydrogenated amorphous silicon layer is lessthan 10.sup.15 defects/cc.
