Conditions for the Dye Sensitization of Photoprocesses in Semiconductors


The necessary requirements for the photoeffect sensitization are the existence of electron states in the semiconductors capable of accepting energy from the dye and subsurface band bending. Methods for control of the sensitization efficiency are discussed.
