Parameters of alloy p-n junctions in Cu2O

  • P. A. Kotsyumakha

The p-n junctions are made by melting copper on single-crystal Cu2O plates. A change in specific resistance of the Cu2O from 2.8 × 102 to 1.15 × 105 ohm-cm causes the reverse voltage at a reverse-current density of 2 m A/cm2 to increase from 15 to 500 V, while the forward current density at 2 V decreases from 250 to 2 mA/cm2.
