As is obvious from a comparison of the expressions given above for the photocurrent generated in a photovoltaic device and for the anode current in a PMT, for similar quantum efficiencies the photovoltaic device will produce G times less current. External electronic amplification, with its associated problems of additional noise, is then required to raise the output of the photovoltaic device to a measurable level. However, this lessened sensitivity does mean that such devices can be operated at much higher incident optical powers than a PMT.

Constructed as a multiple quantum well device from wide bandgap III-V materials, laser action is engineered to occur between energy levels located entirely within the conduction band of the semiconductor. The dimensions of the quantum wells within the device determine the energy levels themselves. LID region. Recent devices have promised room temperature operation at similar powers or greater. This combination of mature and wellunderstood semiconductor technology with some unique laser device physics is on the threshold of revolution ising IR laser spectroscopy.

The limiting current MARTIN R. S. McCOUSTRA 28 naturally depends on the type of photocathode material as demonstrated in Table 4, and is dependent on the area of the material illuminated. Illuminating a small area of a photocathode with an intense light source will therefore result in the generation of the limiting current, as opposed to that 14 Stage 12 Stage 10 Stage 1000 1500 2000 Applied Voltage / V 2500 Figure 18.
