    • Abstract

       

      Thin films of amorphous germanium were deposited in an oxygen atmosphere.dc conductivity results are interpreted considering the possibility of the formation of Ge-O bonds. The density of states was determined. Results of conductivity are interpreted using the Davis-Mott model. Change in conductivity in annealed films of V-a-Ge and O-a-Ge is also reported.
