The optoelectronic properties of ultrananocrystalline diamond films (UNCD) grown using N2=0 and 5% in the deposition gas mixture, are investigated by transient photocurrent measurements under nanosecond light pulses, both in planar and sandwich contact arrangements.

Abstract

The optoelectronic properties of ultrananocrystalline diamond films (UNCD) grown using N2=0 and 5% in the deposition gas mixture, are investigated by transient photocurrent measurements under nanosecond light pulses, both in planar and sandwich contact arrangements. Independent of contact configuration and N2% value, very similar characteristic times in the 6-7ns range are detected in the nanosecond range, reflecting a homogeneous distribution of states responsible for such decay times. On a longer time scale, nitrogen addition appears to slow down carrier transport promoting trapping and detrapping processes responsible for single and two power law photocurrent decays in films deposited using N2=5% for sandwich and planar contact arrangements, respectively. Such a result suggests a nitrogen induced transport anisotropy tentatively related to structural modifications occurring at relatively low N2%.
