Abstract

The responsivity at a constant detection area of non-steady-state photoinduced electromotive force (photo-emf) detectors is improved by a factor equal to the number of contact pairs contained in asymmetric interdigitated surface contacts. The polar nature of photo-emf current generation requires contact asymmetry in which one increases the total signal by blocking the illumination between alternate contact pairs, in distinct contrast to the behavior of conventional interdigitated contacts fabricated upon isotropic photoconductors.
