Expression de la Tension Photovoltaïque Induite par Transition Interbande Dans des Couches Minces de Sulfure de Zinc

En considérant les variations dimensionnelles de la tension photovoltaïque induite en circuit ouvert par des rayonnements lumineux d'énergie supérieure à 3,66 eV dans des structures sandwich Al/ZnS/Au, ainsi que les variations avec le flux lumineux du courant de court-circuit et de la conductance correspondant à la phototransition entre bandes, l'hypothèse d'une quasi-bande de conduction créée par l'ionisation de centres coulombiens est avancée. Elle conduit à une formulation de la tension photovoltaïque en bonne cohérence avec l'expérience.Variations with thickness of open-circuit voltage, short-circuit current and photoconductance associated to interband transition lead to postulate the existence of a quasi-conduction band, associated with ionized coulombic centres, in Al/ZnS/Au illuminated (photon energy > 3,66 eV) sandwich structures. An expression of open-circuit voltage is deduced, in good agreement with experimental data.
