This paper deals with the electrical properties in the parallel direction of compositionally modulated amorphous silicon/amorphous silicon-carbon multilayers. Conductivity of three series of samples with varying well and barrier thicknesses is studied. The results show that dark conductivity decreases when reducing a-Si:H layer thickness. This is interpreted as an alloy effect at interfaces. The role of the a-Si1-xCx:H layers in the photoconductivity decrease observed in series with variable mean composition and constant well thickness is discussed
