The crystalline-amorphous transition during chemical vapour deposition of silicon has been studied. Results are reported for growth from 2.3 vol% SiH4 177 in hydrogen at atmospheric pressure. From optical measurements two after-growth phenomena were discerned, viz. a change in emissivity below T = 6780C and a change in optical thickness below T = 7720C. Consistent with the mechanism of formation the observed optical phenomena are connected with differences in the structure of the deposited material and the related solid state transitions a-Si:H + a-Si + c-Si.
