The photosensitivity of isotypical heterojunctions n-In2O3n-CdGeP2 in natural and linearly polarized light at temperatures in the range 160–370 K was studied. It was found that the photosensitivity to natural light exhibits a window effect; a conclusion is drawn regarding the character of the interband A and B transitions in CdGeP2 and about their temperature dependence. The temperature dependence of the polarization photosensitivity of heterojunctions was studied, and its numerical parameters were determined.
