Silicon material having no definite or regular crystal structure; the semi-conducting material in a-Si active matrices
A semiconductor film used as the active layer in most active matrix liquid crystal displays (LCDs). It is based upon the electronic properties of a glass alloy of silicon and hydrogen.
A form of silicon that is noncrystalline. Also called thin film, it is different from regular silicon used in panels and chips, in that it is more flexible. It can be deposited in thin (measured in micrometers) layers by a number of methods.
