An Investigation of Photodiode Response

This paper summarizes the basic laws of relaxation for photocarriers separated by a p-n junction. A method is proposed for measuring the parameters of this mechanism and determining its role in the experimentally observed transient processes. A suitable apparatus is described, together with a series of measurements on rectangular silicon photodiodes, and their results.
