|Title:||Transport Length, Quantum Efficiency, And Trap Density Measurement In Bi12sio20|
|Author:||Dos Santos P.A.M.|
|Abstract:||We report the measurement of diffusion transport length LD, quantum efficiency π for photoelectron generation, and the Debye screening length and associated trap density NA in an undoped Bi 12SiO20 (BSO) photorefractive crystal. The method is based on the optical erasing of holographically recorded gratings in the crystal. The measurement of the diffraction efficiency evolution is considerably facilitated profitting from polarization properties of anisotropic diffraction in BSO-type crystals in a self-diffraction experiment. Data processing is carried out using simple linear regression techniques for experimental conditions in two limiting situations: far from and well into trap saturation conditions. We prove that optical erasure closely verifies the decay law predicted by theory even if a highly contrasted pattern of light is used for recording. We measured NA=6.3×1016 cm-3, agreeing in order of magnitude, with already reported values, but found out LD=0.1 μm, which is too much lower than data in literature for an electron-based charge transport material as this one.|
