This application targets to study and explore the liquid phase deposition of silicon heterostructures. Solution processing of silicon based electronic devices has attracted considerable attention owing to the possibility of low-cost fabrication by printing processes. For this project previously unknown heteroelement substituted higher silicon hydrides which contain one or more heteroatoms covalently linked to silicon shall be synthesized. The resulting materials, shall then be applied as single source precursors for the deposition of functional silicon films. In case of a successful performance of the project novel classes of functionalized higher silicon hydrides will be available for the first time. Additionally, the planned research work will provide access to previously unknown processes for the manufacturing of silicon heterostructures of high significance for academic and industrial electronics research.
