ABSTRACT
Power limiting and self-switching which is caused by the field shielding effects of charge created by photoconductivity at 1.06 μm in CdTe have been demonstrated. The effect has a relatively low threshold of ∼100 μW/cm2, an extrapolated switching time of microseconds, and can be used over the wavelength band of approximately 0.9–1.3 μm.
