Abstract

An analysis of photodetection in the visible, ultraviolet, and near-infrared with silicon microdischarge devices was presented. The results indicated that the semiconductor photocathode determines the spectral response of the device whereas the plasma serves as an electron multiplier. The sensitivity and dynamic range of the semiconductor/plasma photodetector suggested that arrays of microdischarge photodetectors are potentially valuable for spectroscopic and biochemical applications.
