Photoconductivity in confined gallium

Photoconductivity in confined gallium
Photoconductivity in confined gallium
We report on the observation of photoconductivity in elemental gallium confined at an interface with glass. The effect is associated with a fully reversible light-induced structural transformation in the metal, which affects a surface layer only a few nanometers thick. The effect has the potential for applications in optically fast, broadband photodetectors.

Abstract

We report on the observation of photoconductivity in elemental gallium confined at an interface with glass. The effect is associated with a fully reversible light-induced structural transformation in the metal, which affects a surface layer only a few nanometers thick. The effect has the potential for applications in optically fast, broadband photodetectors.
