The effects of different electric fields (4.2, 8.3, 12.5, 16.7 and 20.8 Vcm−1) on the sheet resistance, Rs, and optical band gap, Eobg, of As2Se3 samples (1×105nm) that were photodoped by Ag (5×103nm) have been studied. The Rs and Eobg of samples subjected to an electric field of 12.5 Vcm−1 decrease linearly to a distance of 5 mm from both electrodes, and then saturate at larger distances. This result suggests that there is a critical value of the electric field which affects photodoping. The dependence of Rs and Eobg on the distance from the electrodes shows similar profiles for these electrodes.
