Under a dc light bias, the ac constant photocurrent method (CPM) yields an anomalous subgap optical absorption over that without the bias. When the intensity of the bias is high, an absorption band appears. However, absorption measured by ac photothermal deflection spectroscopy (PDS) is much less affected by the bias. A simple model qualitatively explains the effect on the PDS spectra and suggests that the anomalous CPM absorption is an apparent one which represents a variation of the recombination lifetime.
