Abstract
(EN)
Described are preferred processes for conditioning semiconductor devices with deuterium to improve operating characteristics and decrease depassivation which occurs during the course of device operation. Also described are semiconductor devices (11) comprising a semiconductor (12) containing one or more elements from Group III, IV or V of the periodic table, a semiconductive layer (13, 14), and insulative layer (17), and a conductive layer (20).
