Abstract:

The kinetics of the electronic processes at a contact of 2 pieces of a semiconductor separated by a potential barrier, are investigated. The barrier is assumed to be created by captured carriers in surface states. The kinetics of the increase and decrease in the photocurrent is asymmetric, and at large intensities it has a characteristic S-shape. Calculated results are in reasonable agreement with results obtained experimentally on powdered ZnO.
