The current-voltage characteristics of the transmitted and emitted current were investigated under photoexcitation conditions in metal-insulator-semiconductor systems Sin-Si3N4-Al and SipSin-Si3N4-Al. The laws governing the current flow are analyzed and the region where there is proportional conversion of a light signal into a free-electron flux is defined.
