Abstract

"A light-sensitive, negative-resistance phenomenon has been observed in a special two-terminal CdS device fabricated from selected single crystals. The device differs from those used in previous investigations in that one end of the device was masked to keep out visible light and that the phenomenon was observed at room temperature. A method is described which enables the phenomenon to be observed on a reproducible basis. It was found that the CdS single crystal must have a relatively high density of traps. Possible mechanisms which may contribute to the phenomenon are discussed"--Abstract, page ii.
