Abstract
This Doctoral Thesis comprises research on polysilicon deposition for photovoltaic applications throgh the chemical route: chemical vapor deposition process. Lowering the energy consumption of the Siemens process is essential to achieve the two wider objectives for silicon-based PV trechnology: low production cost and low energy payback time. On the other hand, a valuable variation of this process considers the use of monosilane (MS) in a fluidized bed reactor (FBR); lower output material quality is obtained but it may fulfil the requirements for the PV industry. FBRs demand lower energy consumption than Siemens reactors but further research is necessary to address trhe acatual challenges of these reactors.
