ABSTRACT
The onset time of photocrystallization (PC) as a function of temperature in a-Se films designed for avalanche photodetectors is explored using Raman scattering experiments. The PC onset time τon is compared to the time-constant τIPD for irreversible photodarkening (IPD) studied in earlier work. Both τon and τIPD exhibit activated thermal behavior mediated by an energy barrier EB∼0.7–0.95 eV. We suggest that the formation kinetics of PC and IPD in a-Se are governed by the same energy surface and configuration changes, occurring via photoinduced defects during the primary stage of crystallization.
