The mechanism for photcurrent generation and conduction in the Au NP system was discussed and the applicability of metallic Au NPs for photodetection was demonstrated. Under light-illumination, the photoexcitation generates sufficient electron-hole pairs, such that the limiting factor is the carrier-injection barriers at the electrode/NPs contacts. Si in the ITO/p-Si-junction is found to exhibit two optical absorption peaks at 3.5 and 4.2eV respectively, while the photon energy used here is 2.3eV, which is associated with a low absorption coefficient. The photocurrent relation observed highlights the significance of the close packing of Au NPs in photocurrent generation and conduction.||Source Title:||Advanced Materials||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/112616||ISSN:||09359648||DOI:||10.1002/adma.200900249|
