In a photoconductive @[email protected] an @[email protected] is applied across the absorbing region and causes a current to flow in proportion to the irradiance if the photon energy exceeds the energy gap between the @[email protected] and the @[email protected] Depending on their @[email protected], photoconductive detectors are divided into photoconductive detectors for the @[email protected] @[email protected] range e.g. cadmium sulfide or CdS photoconductive detectors, photoconductive detectors for the near @[email protected] @[email protected] range e.g. lead sulfide or PbS photoconductive detectors, photoconductive detectors for the @[email protected] @[email protected] range e.g. silicon doped with arsenide or Si:As photoconductive detectors, and the mercury-cadmium-telluride or HgCdTe photoconductive detector.
