  • Patent number: 9147789
    Abstract: A photoconductor comprising a layer stack with a semiconductor layer photoconductive for a predetermined wavelength range between two semiconductor boundary layers with a larger band gap than the photoconductive semiconductor layer on a substrate, wherein the semiconductor boundary layers comprise deep impurities for trapping and recombining free charge carriers from the photoconductive semiconductor layer, and two electrodes connected to the photoconductive semiconductor layer, for lateral current flow between the electrodes through the photoconductive semiconductor layer.
    Type: Grant
