In this work the simulation of charge carrier transport processes was carried out in the structure consisted of metal — porous silicon — mono-silicon — metal for p-type silicon on the base of hypothesis of two rectifying transitions. Approbation of this model was done and it was demonstrated a good agreement between theoretical and experimental results. The specific resistivity value was estimated for different formation regimes.
