Paper Abstract

Characteristic features of the photoelectric amplification of graded-band-gap photoresistors which energy gap is increased linearly towards contacts are considered theoretically. It has been shown that nonmonotonic field dependence of the photoelectric amplification coefficient is realized in such photoresistors. Maximum value the photoelectric amplification coefficient being increased under the increase of energy gap gradient can be much greater than that of the homogeneous samples.
