The plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposition was combined with in situ deposition of Ge and Sn thin film by evaporation technique at surface temperature about 220 °C to form nanoparticles on the surface of hydrogenated silicon thin films to prepare diodes. Formation of nanoparticles was additionally stimulated by plasma treatment through a low pressure hydrogen glow discharge. The diodes based on PIN diode structures with and without the embedded Ge or Sn nanoparticles were characterized by temperature dependence of electrical conductivity, activation energy of conductivity, measurement of volt-ampere characteristics in dark and under solar illumination.Keywords: a-Si:H, Ge NPs, Sn NPs, diode structures, I-V characteristics
