Si Plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) at a near-atmospheric pressure (NAP) of 500 Torr has been conducted by using a pulsed-electric-field based NAP-PECVD system. At a growth temperature of 180°C, poly-Si films with a high Roman ratio of 7.4 were obtained on glass substrates, while epitaxial-like growth occurred when Si(100) substrates were employed, as confirmed by Roman-scattering spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, and a cross-sectional transmission-electron microscopy.
