It is shown that inert gas effusion employing implanted neon and argon atoms is a useful tool for microstructure characterization of a-Si based alloys. The method measures sensitively interconnected voids and gives information about sizes of microstructure. Limitations of the method are discussed. The results show network reconstruction effects in a-Si:O:H and a-Si:C:H alloys as a function of annealing.
