Term (Index) Definition
photodetector  semiconductor device which electrical characteristics change upon illumination with light featuring energy higher than semiconductor's energy gap; semiconductor (energy gap) must be selected to match wavelength of radiation to be detected.
generation  process of free charge carriers formation in semiconductor; in band-to-band generation electron acquiring energy in excess of energy gap moves from the energy state in the valance band to the energy state in the conduction band leaving free hole in the valance band; formation of electron-hole pair.
