Abstract: The near normal incidence transmittance spectra of p-, i- and n-layer a-Si:H thin film samples, prepared by glow discharge decomposition of silane (SiH4), were measured at two different temperatures (77 K and 300 K), for the first time at the Addis Ababa University. From the measured transmittance spectra the optical band gap of each a-Si:H thin film layer was calculated by computer simulation using the Forouhi and Bloomer dielectric function model which was derived for the interband transition of electrons. The effect of temperature on the optical band gap of a-Si:H thin films and hence on the solar cell application is discussed.
