Photoconductivity of Ge1-xSix single crystals in the range 115–300 K

  • M. Ya. Bakirov
  • R. V. Shakhbazova


The steady-state photoconductivity ofn- andp-type Ge1-xSix single crystals was measured in the range 115–300 K. The results were interpreted using a model considering two types of centers with markedly different capture cross sections.
