Abstract

Surface-barrier photodiodes prepared by the vacuum deposition of a semi-transparent gold layer on Hg3In2Te6 single-crystal substrates are studied. I-V characteristics taken at temperatures between 278 and 323 K and the photosensitivity spectrum recorded in the range 0.6–1.8 µm, which is of great importance for fiber-optics communication, are given. Charge transfer mechanisms are treated in terms of generation-recombination processes in the space-charge region of the diode.
