Abstract:

The ultraviolet photovoltaic response of barrier layer cells formed from single-crystal rutile was investigated. Typical samples have response maxima at 3200 angstroms, a detectivity D of 10 to the 9th power cm-cps 12w, and time constant over several time constants of 100 micro-sec. Variations in time constant over several orders of magnitude were observed they depend largely on preparation technique. The effect of surface treatment on cell characteristics is discussed.
