FIG. 1.

The energy band model, showing the presence of a Schottky barrier and bending in the conduction band , valence band , and vacuum energy level near the Al/nanocrystal interface. The built-in electric field within the depletion region of the nanocrystal layer governs the transport of photogenerated electrons and holes . The Fermi level is drawn to show the -type conduction characteristics. The bandgap of these nanocrystals is , defined as the first absorption peak energy.

FIG. 2.

Representative current transient signals used to extract (a) the hole mobility (CELIV, under ramp rate) and (b) the electron mobility (time-of-flight, under bias). The inset shows the bias dependence of the transit time . The slope of the data above was used to determine the mobility. The dashed red lines represent in (a) the different current density levels and in (b) the least-squares fits to the data.

FIG. 3.

(a) Representative decay signal (after , illumination turn off) and a linear best fit (dashed red line) used to determine the recombination-limited lifetime. (b) Lifetime (blue crosses, left axis) and EQE (red circles, right axis) and as a function of illumination intensity at . A knee can be seen in the EQE plot at , which corresponds to the intensity at which the minority carrier transit time exceeds the lifetime. The scatter in the data at low intensities is due to larger measurement uncertainty.
