Abstract

The use of tin oxide, condensed water vapor, and water drop electrodes on the oxide surface as well as corona charging of the surface are compared in their ability to repel minority carriers from recombination sites at the oxide–silicon interface without compromising the optical properties of the photodiode. Corona charging provides significant advantages compared with the other three approaches.
