Proceedings Of The Symposium On Thin Film Science And Technology


The band gap of semiconductor is determined by photovoltage spectrum. The photovoltage sign shows the semiconductor to be ofn-type conductivity. Mott-Schottky plot gives the position of Fermi level, the approximate position of band edges, donor density in the semiconductor and space charge layer thickness. The results agree with other reported values.
