Abstract

In this work we report studies on the non linear dependence of the optical gain with the incident power in an amorphous silicon bulk barrier phototransistor based on a n-i-p-i-n structure. The optical gain shows a quasi-hyperbolic dependence on the illumination intensity. The non-linear behavior was predicted by an analytical device model which takes into account the properties of both material and structure, which lead to the amplification mechanism of the device.
